Nokie smartwatch rumored for second half of next year

Those of you into your Nokia history may remember the Nokia Morph video which showed a futuristic gadget that could change both shape and size to become a smartphone and a smartwatch. Nokia showed off the device at the Museum of Modern Arts way back in 2008, but last March, Nokia applied for a patent related to this technology. That sort of ‘morph’ technology may just be applied into a new Nokia smartwatch.

According to a report which cites a tip, the smartwatch is expected to be ready for the second half of 2014, and the watch will stay under Nokia’s banners instead of moving across to Microsoft. The report also goes on to say that the head of Emerging Devices, Axel Meyer and Peter Skillman are working together on the project, which is said to employ the Nokia Kinetic technology, allowing the user to bend and squeeze the device.

The report continues by saying that the watch will feature ‘morph’ technology. Nokia describes this as “nanoscale technologies that will potentially create a world of radically different devices that open up an entirely new spectrum of possibilities”.
