A new report suggests 2015 is more likely
After years of rumors, the iWatch might finally be complete, but it is hard to know judging from the rumors that swirl, pointing to both sides of the argument. Will it be released this year? How much will it cost? A new report has new details.
According to the new report coming from KGI Securities, there are production issues happening that will delay the release until 2015. This comes out after many were expecting the device to be announced in only a few short days at Apple’s big Sept 9 event. While this could be a big disappointment, Apple likes to make sure that their products are ready for release and they rarely rush something to production.
There is also the question of a price. Reports have been back and forth on this topic, with some pointing to several thousands of dollars and some pointing to only $200. According to Ming Chi Kuo, it will retail for $400, which might still seem high to many consumers that are interested in it. Without the same cost subsidizing as phones, it could pose a problem.
In any case, the iWatch promises to be a truly revolutionary product. Smartwatches have been for sale before, but this could be the first time that a company finds a massive audience with one. On Sept 9 we’ll know for sure, although there will certainly be plenty of questions still.
