Here Comes the BlackBerry Watch

Wristwatch isn't an official BlackBerry product, but it will let you check the messages arriving on your BlackBerry phone.

Say hello to inhuman business productivity: here comes the BlackBerry watch.

The BlackBerry watch is being created by inPulse for use with RIM's BlackBerry phones. CrackBerry.com stresses that the Bluetooth-connected inPulse SmartWatch (as it's being called at the moment) is not produced by BlackBerry, but rather it is a peripheral accessory.

Citing an unnamed source, CrackBerry.com uncovered these two images and a few specs, including:

  • It's designed by a new BlackBerry-dedicated accessory company.
  • It features an OLED screen for clearly visible text and solid battery life.
  • It shows notifications and message previews.

Pretty simple stuff, but the inPulse SmartWatch could prove mighty handy for fast-paced business junkies. The second a message comes through, you'll not only know it by the vibration of your phone; you'll see it lit up on your wrist. That mean you can discreetly keep track of what's happening back at the office during Thanksgiving dinner!

The inPulse SmartWatch does not yet have a price or an availability date, but CrackBerry claims it's coming "soon."

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
