Microsoft Working on Smartwatches?


It looks like Apple's interest in wrist-wearable computing devices aka smartwatches may have triggered the eternally late Microsoft, to begin groundwork on smartwatches of its own. According to a Wall Street Journal report, Microsoft is in the market for components needed to build such a device. Specifically, the report states that Microsoft is looking for 1.5-inch touchscreens. Unless Microsoft plans to deploy these touchscreens in its next-generation Xbox "Durango" controllers, it's likely that the company has an active smartwatch project in progress.
