Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch coming to a wrist near you?

SM-V100T2-498x465According to a new trademark filed by Samsung, they are indeed working on wearable computing technology, and they already have a name for it. Previously we have heard numerous rumours that Samsung is working on a new Android based smartwatch. Today, a new trademark filing came to light confirming the device with the name "Samsung Galaxy Gear." Here’s a quote from the trademark filing for it:

"Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers." It’s possible this is a trademark that Samsung is scooping up to hold for the future. However, with all of the rumours floating around about an impending launch of a smartwatch from Samsung, we suspect this will be the name we see when it finally comes to light. In fact, we may see this device launch as soon as September 4th during the IFA 2013 event in Germany. We will keep an eye out!

I am hoping “Gear” actually equates to a new product line of various bits and pieces to assist your particular choice of Galaxy phone. A watch being a starting point. Add to this other wireless peripherals like headphones, docks, remote control vehicles, projectors. we have seen many of these things before and of all the companies that could role these novelty devices, Samsung is the one.

Big Things Ahead with HTC

HTChange HTC are fond of teasing us but this time they seem to be taking it to the n’th degree by releasing a video just 16 seconds long promising of ‘Big Things Ahead’.

The video, released along with the hashtag #HTChange, seems to feature one Robert Downey Jr., whom we know HTC have signed a deal with, and the briefest glimpse of an HTC phone which we believe is likely to be the HTC One Max, fitting in nicely with the ‘Big Thing’ promised.

There’s sure to be more of this video released over the coming days so keep your eyes peeled!
