Details have surfaced about the Bluetooth BlackBerry Watch accessory that was rumored a few months ago. The device will not be manufactured by RIM, but rather a third party accessory company.
The watch is a Bluetooth-connected device that serves as an alert system for your BlackBerry communications. If you’re in the car, on a bike, or traveling with your device not in-hand, the watch will keep you updated with alerts.
The pic, which is likely the beginnings of the inPulse Smartwatch, tells us that the concept for the device came from Eric Migicovsky, an engineering student at Waterloo who won some startup capital. It’s not clear if Eric’s company is making the hardware, but it definitely seems as though they are powering the software.
