    Default Samsung Confirms Smart Watch Showdown with Apple


    Despite Apple's unwillingness to confirm plans for a so-called "smart watch," an Apple-branded wrist-worn iDevice is all but certainly in the works based on patent filings, supply chain chatter, and industry analyst sources in the know.

    Not surprisingly, Apple's greatest rival in the mobile device space today isn't willing to stand by and just watch the Cupertino, California-based iPhone maker simply corner a new market all by itself. As a result, an executive with Samsung has confirmed plans for the company to market a smart watch of its own.

    “We’ve been preparing the watch product for so long,” Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business, tells Bloomberg. “We are working very hard to get ready for it. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.”

    Lee, however, offered no insight on the features we can expect, when the watch will be released, or what it will ultimately cost.

    Samsung waits for Apple to have the ideas and then they copy them.

    Samsung probably even called apple " what us to make you parts for your watch we saw u have patents for?"

    "If Sony was to make an iWatch, what would it look like "

    "We didn't copy anyone"

    I'm so sick of Samsung hawking Apple and trying to come out with something before them. Just so they can say we did it first!

    Here's the proof you droid, slamslop boys. Like I've been saying, they've made their $$$ on being copycats. I have no respect for them or their customers. And for you slamcrap fans...feel free to reply, I never read the replies you dolts. I'm American supporting an American company who continues to lead the technology despite the hub bub that Apple needs to update and is falling behind. NOT, the IOS is so good they don't need to....all that glitzy crap on a droid phone just slows it down, it's made for children and reading the droid fans comments you can tell....so there nah nah....

    Lol this would definitely be hilarious if it were to happen. I can see it now, at Apple's next Keynote they show a cheesy Star Trek episode where they show them talking to "smart-watches," and then Tim Cook just stares at the audience and says "really? Nice job Samsung."

    As a result Apple releases their super-top-secret device, the iShoe! Its killer feature? You can levitate like Shadow the hedgehog!

    Lol can you even imagine, every manufacturer making huge watches to compete with each other like they are currently doing in the smartphone space. Every Android user will bash three years from now saying, "Apple is crazy for not making a watch that wraps from my neck to fingers!"

    Surely if apple are not making one then you technically can't say they're being copied.... An idea is just that, an idea, until it's made into actual tech. And before I'm accused of being a Samsung fan boy, iv owned ever iPhone up to the 4 since the original one and wouldnt change. Only reason I haven't touched the iPhone 5 is the scraping issue and waiting for the next gen...

    I hope they do make it for the times when I can't have my phone ie work, gym etc. This is what I like about Samsung, they are so quick in getting things done

    Does Samsung ever originate any thing any more? Or do they just sit around and copy every thing? No wonder they are loosing market share to Apple, they are so lame. Samsung hasn’t had an original idea in years, come on guys, stop imitating and start originating.

    If it isn't in existence you can't be a copycat.

    Really? If I'm not mistaken there are already some out that interface with phones. Guess that makes Apple a me-to huh?

    And will probably have the flexible screen they developed. If I were them I'd tell other companies that wanted to use 'em to get stuffed for 8-12 months.

    I'm really wanting to get an actual smartwatch soon. Apple or Samsung whichever is nicer. I'm sure the apple UI will be much nicer but Samsung does have a lot of nice features in their phones.

    Exactly.. Plus the specs of samsungs phones have pulled ahead of the iPhone. The galaxy S4 sadly proves that along with the Sony and HTC latest phones. Come on Apple! Hopefully iPhone 5S/6 isn't a bust..
