Will Google Give Out Its Smartwatch on Halloween?
According to 9to5Google, a Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) watch is coming, and it’s coming soon. The blog highlighted rumors Monday that a new Nexus watch, codenamed Gem, is expected to be announced by Google alongside the anticipated Android 4.4 KitKat by the end of this month, and it even pinpoints Oct. 31 as a possible launch date, although those details have yet to be confirmed.
9to5Google reports that it gathered its information from Artem Russakovskii, a contributor for Android Police, but it maintains it also heard similar murmurings from other sources that expect a Google smartwatch to launch by the end of October.
Many Google consumers have been waiting patiently for the Menlo Park, California-based company to corroborate rumors about the watch which has now long been anticipated. However, the tech giant has so far remained mum about the possibility, and thus sources can still only speculate.
