The Samsung Gear Live has made its way to the Google Play Store and will start to ship from July 11th. It is the company’s first smartwatch powered by the Android Wear OS. Google has expanded the availability of the smartwatch and now it is available in three more countries. Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, United Kingdom, United States. Australia, Japan and South Korea are all getting the smartwatch and looks like the availability will just keep on increasing.
The Samsung Gear Live is IP67-certified and in the USA it has been priced at $199. This Android Wear smartwatch is also going to be available through Samsung’s own retail networks by the end of this month. From the inside, the Samsung Gear Live runs on the Snapdragon 400 chipset which is most probably a downclocked chip probably using only one of the four Cortex-A7 cores but it still quite widespread now. The same hardware is being featured on the LG’s G watch. A recently leaked picture also shows how the insides of the Gear Live and G Watch differ from one another.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
