Morning Tech Talk - Wednesday: Apple iWatch - Fantasy or Fact?

What's Apple's next BIG thing? You may soon be wearing it on your wrist!

It's been long rumored that the top mobile phone vendor may be working on a smaller, sleeker device. Yes! A new piece of hardware, dubbed the iWatch, may be coming your way sooner than you think. 

Apple has had a long standing history of developing disruptive technology; using next generation hardware, coupled with their proprietary, and heavily controlled software, they've produced some of the best technology in existence. With mobile phone sales in a slump, Apple will be looking to release their next big thing, and this could be it...

The iWatch, or whatever they may call it, could use Willow Glass, a new type of flexible glass produced by Corning, to allow for a curved touchscreen. Corning is the company that produces Gorilla Glass, used on screens all throughout the mobile marketplace, as well as Apple devices. The details are sketchy, but this little device will most likely run iOS, allow you to receive email, texts, and could even provide for indoor navigation. What else could it do? Well, at best, it could be a full blown extension of your mobile device, with simple, daily use applications available during your morning jog. 

Of course, these are the rumors, but with Apple, you just never know what may become reality.
