Portable Android Platform

Just when you thought that Android couldn’t get any better, a new company called WIMM came along.  As of earlier today, WIMM has announced the making of a small, wearable, computing platform that is built based on Android.

The product is called the WIMM One and it will be released in the third quarter of this year.  The platform has a 1.4 inch touch screen display and has Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.  Besides this, it also includes an accelerometer, and magnetometer is order to track your motion (i.e. on a bike or while you’re running).  The WIMM One is designed to be fit into wristwatches, keychains, or even a clip for your bicycle.

The WIMM One will comes loaded with a variety of “micro apps” as the company calls them.  Unfortunatly, even thought the WIMM One can connect to Wi-Fi, the only way to manage the device and add more “micro apps” is to connect it through your computer.

This seems to be the start of a new type of technology integrated into wristwatches and keychains and it is something that we should keep an eye out for in the near future.
