Apple’s ‘iWatch’ to feature flexible display, sources say

“Apple has apparently decided to equip its smartwatch with a flexible display, industry sources said,” The Chosun Ilbo reports. “They said the rumored ‘iWatch’ will be equipped with a plastic OLED monitor that can be bent.”

“Apple is said to be developing three different models of the iWatch — a 1.3-inch, 1.4-inch and 1.5-inch prototype,” The Chosun Ilbo reports. “‘A prototype of the 1.5-inch has already been made,’ the source said.”

  1. Apple has apparently decided to equip its smartwatch with a flexible display

    Yes, we know, postulated previously. This is precisely why we don’t yet have an iWatch and why Apple will not be perpetrating a brick-on-a-wrist POS StupidWatch like ScamScum. Apple is waiting until the technology is available to fit exactly what they want to make and sell. Nothing less is allowed. Nothing better will be available. Strike when the technology can be manufactured in mass quantities. Don’t count your transistors before they’re primed. A stitch in time saves your company from selling not-ready-for-prime-time crap. And so on.

  2. I’m starting a rumor that the ‘iWatch’ isn’t a watch at all. It’s a web cam security service for the home. I am as well qualified as any ‘analyst,’ ‘pundit,’ or stock speculator to make these prognostications; meaning I have no qualifications what-so-ever. Therefore my rumor is as reliable as anyone else’s. 🙂

  3. What’s the big obsession with some kind of “iWatch”, iPhone nano, or similar product? Just because it can be done, doesn’t mean it should/will be done. Apple makes great products for people — provided it provides a good user experience. Smaller does not mean better.
