In May, at All things Digital Conference, chief Executive of the US based mobile firm Apple Inc, Tim Cook said that the market for wearable computing is ripe for innovation and hinted that wrist was a natural place for such a device. At that time it was fumed that may be the well known MNC is behind such device but confirmation of the news came right after what Apple did in Tokyo.
The MNC has filed a trademark application for "iWatch" in Japan, which was followed by filing the same in Russia, Mexico and Taiwan. Filing for trademark in various countries strongly confirms the guesses that it might be preparing new watch-like device for its consumers. Note that till now, the applications have been filed under categories like computer, watch device, hardware, software etc.
Earlier Wall Street Journal too reported that the Apple Inc is in progress for making a device which is sort of watch like device which will sport smartphone functions. After making mobile market a great competition in terms of smartphones, it seems that the flagship companies are behind smart watches too. Recently, Sony also launched Smartwatch 2 which acts as second screen for the Android device and now Apple seems to be following the same path.
