Here Comes the BlackBerry Watch

Wristwatch isn't an official BlackBerry product, but it will let you check the messages arriving on your BlackBerry phone.

Say hello to inhuman business productivity: here comes the BlackBerry watch.

The BlackBerry watch is being created by inPulse for use with RIM's BlackBerry phones. CrackBerry.com stresses that the Bluetooth-connected inPulse SmartWatch (as it's being called at the moment) is not produced by BlackBerry, but rather it is a peripheral accessory.

Citing an unnamed source, CrackBerry.com uncovered these two images and a few specs, including:

  • It's designed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company.
  • It features an OLED screen for clearly visible text and solid battery life.
  • It shows notifications and message previews.

Pretty simple stuff, but the inPulse SmartWatch could prove mighty handy for fast-paced business junkies. The second a message comes through, you'll not only know it by the vibration of your phone; you'll see it lit up on your wrist. That mean you can discreetly keep track of what's happening back at the office during Thanksgiving dinner!

The inPulse SmartWatch does not yet have a price or an availability date, but CrackBerry claims it's coming "soon."

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
