Motorola had a contest on watch face designs on Google+ and recently narrowed it down to a few finalists. Let’s say that it is not too surprising that they just announced the winner in the minuted preceding the Google IO keynote.
This week we discovered one very important feature for the upcoming Moto 360, Motorola’s smartwatch that is expected to be revealed on June 25th at Google I/O. Wireless charging will most likely be revealed for the Moto 360 as part of the product announcement on Wednesday. This information comes from an FCC filing last week by Motorola for a Smart Watch Wireless Charger.
Let’s be clear here, until the fruit company makes an official announcement nothing any analyst or leakster says will hold water. That being said, Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities claims he has details about Apple’s possible smartwatch which he says come from a Taiwanese supply chain for Apple. I usually try to avoid articles like this but the source site is Pocket-lint and I had to laugh at the headline for their story (Apple iWatch details leak, said to look like the Moto 360). The reason Mr. Blair and Pocket-lint say the Apple smartwatch looks like the Moto 360? Because it is round. Yes it is round. Which kind of makes it look like a hundred different watches on the planet doesn’t it?
