inPulse watch gives BBerry mail, calls
Quickly following up on recent leaks, Allerta today unveiled the inPulse BlackBerry smartwatch. Made as a companion for BlackBerry smartphones, the watch pairs over Bluetooth and provides caller ID and e-mail headers in real-time on an OLED display to save users the trouble of checking the phone. It can also recognize SMS notices, RSS news feeds and even Twitter updates.
The watch can be customized to set special alarms and timers as well as screen out certain messages or sleep the watch at certain times of the day. Pre-orders start today, though the $149 CAD ($142 US) watch isn't due to ship until February.
