Whether you’re trying to catch up or looking for innovation, Microsoft is working on a tactile smartwatch, the Wall Street Newspaper says. According to the report, the software giant has contacted an unidentified number of Asian vendors to deliver the components for the wearable device.
If the WSJ rumor is legitimate, the folks in Redmond are joining Google, Apple, and Samsung to reinvent the wristwatch, which was superseded by the cell phone some time ago. Until now, Microsoft has yet to comment on the matter.
Although, it seems that the company will join other companies trying to make money with a new device. This is not Microsoft’s first attempt to build a smartwatch. In 2004 there was a device called SPOT (Smart Personal Object Technology), a watch capable of receiving information from MSN (stocks, weather, headlines, etc.) through FM signals. It was a large watch that cost around $ 330, in addition to the monthly or annual subscription service; however, Microsoft removed SPOT in 2008.
There isn’t enough information yet on exactly how Microsoft plans to deal with the smartwatch, but what is certain is that the company is really taking a risk by building its own devices. Of course, the company has had its ups and downs with devices like the hit Xbox or the now-forgotten Zune player, or even the Surface that hasn’t convinced many yet, it’s worthy hardware. But in the end the game can be for any company. It will also be interesting to see if Microsoft’s next smartwatch will use Windows 8, Windows Embedded 8, or even Windows RT as the operating system, or something entirely new.
The news comes shortly after new reports show the PC industry is down 13.9%, and after days of rumors of a 7-inch Surface tablet that Microsoft plans for later this year.
