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.
As a follow up from an earlier post, this weekend Asus announced that a Transformer 2 is in the making. Although it has been announced, there has been no details about the device or any clue on the launch date but we can probably assume that it will be revealed on or around the next Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. The only thing there has been speculation about is that the new tablet will most likely support Nvidia’s new quad-core processor. However, Asus chairman promised that it will be “impressive”.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you would have read this post back in January convering the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on different tablets PCs that were coming out this year. I mainly focused on the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and how different and revolutionized it looked.
The Eee Pad Transformer has proved itself to be different in design when compared to leading tablet PCs such as the iPad or Motorola’s Xoom tablet. The Transformer has been considered to be a “hybrid” tablet as it can be used as a regular tablet PC but at the same time, can be used as a regular laptop with regular laptop capabilities.
The Eee Pad runs on a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It also features a 10.1 inch Gorilla Glass multitouch screen. As cameras go, it will come with a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera as well as a 5 megapixel back facing camera. The “laptop” attachment (a.k.a. the keyboard) consists of only the keyboard, trackpad, and a battery (battery lasts an astounding 16 hours long).
This seem to be a great new “revolutionized” version of any tablet out right now and it will be interesting to see if companies start to design their tablets off of this sort of design.

People have been expecting the launch to be in mid September but a recent report from AllThingsD.com, suggests that we should be expecting not a September launch, but one in late October.
Although many reports on release dates have been put out, Apple has yet to release any tips on release dates or even specs on the iPhone itself. Some people have said that the iPhone 5 will feature a larger screen (around 4 inches) while others have said that it will remain at 3.5 inches. Another rumor is that the new design will feature a more “rounded” look to it. Along with this, almost everyone can agree that the new design will be slimmed down and will include Apple’s new A5 dual-core processor to replace the iPhone 4’s A4 single-core processor.
So obviously, there are plenty of rumors going around to get everyone hyped up about the new iPhone. We won’t know for sure until Apple releases the specs for the phone.
Earlier on February 3rd, At&t announced that starting on the 13th, users will be allowed to pre-order their newest phone, the Motorola Atrix, which will be coming out on March 6th. The phone will run on the brand new 4G network and will go for $199.99 with a new two-year contract.
The Atrix will be powered by Android 2.2 and a insanely fast Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Besides having 1GB of RAM, it will also have a 4 inch touch screen display along with both a rear and front facing camera.
The down side? It costs $45 a month in order to get 2GB of data compared to other companies such as Verizon that offers unlimited data for $30 a month. All in all, look s like a good phone but may be a little bit pricey. Thoughts?
