So Apple has released review samples to the press in order to build up interest in their entry into the smart watch market. It is an interesting move for Apple as they have sent out their $1,000 product to a select group of reviewers just to see what they think. After reading a number of them (some I could not get all the way through) it seems that Apple might not have the magnificent product they were hoping for and even the most Apple faithful sites had a hard time spinning the deficiencies that are there.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung will present their smart watch at the beginning of September. The device named Galaxy Gear will reportedly allow owners to make telephone calls, have internet access, and display e-mail, according to Bloomberg, citing two people familiar with the whole thing. The device should be presented at the event on 4th of September, two days before the opening of the IFA in Berlin.
