The news, which for some time bouncing on international, it seems certain: September 4, Koreans should present the Galaxy Gear, a smartwatch that allows you to make phone calls, surf the Web and manage your email. Just in time for the IFA tech fair, which opens on September 6 in Berlin. On September 4, in addition to a smartwatch, will debut the Galaxy Note III – a sort of “hybrid” between a smartphone and a tablet.
THE CHALLENGE WITH APPLE – According to sources quoted by Bloomberg Galaxy Gear will rely on the Android system and will be on sale by the end of the year. The only “flaw” of Gear: it seems that the first model, in short, what will be presented in September, will not have a flexible screen. But Samsung is already working on the development of the new screen. Such a hurry is a must to beat the time Apple and its iWatch: it seems that Cupertino is a team of 100 designers to work on the device to be able to anticipate the release, originally scheduled for 2014, by the end of 2013. Samsung would thus score another big hit, entering a new sector of the technology market ahead of its main rivals. One of the watches is a segment that is tempting to the big tech this year alone is expected to generate a turnover of 60 billion dollars. For now, the first to launch its giant was Sony; the Japanese are the only ones currently on the market waiting for the models of Samsung, Apple, Google and Microsoft.
