BlackBerry has unveiled a Bluetooth-enabled watch that allows users to use their phone’s features remotely.
Dubbed the BlackBerry Bluetooth watch, the existence of the device was confirmed by Vice President of Research in Motion (RIM) Antoine Boucher at this year’s Wireless Enterprise Symposium.
Owners of the watch will be able to check their mail and social networking site message as well as access music and videos loaded onto their BlackBerry.
News of the RIM’s plans comes as it recently launched its BlackBerry Curve 8520 handset to a glowing response from reviewers and consumers alike.
As well as the advanced email functions for which BlackBerry mobile phones are famous, the Curve 8520 include 16GB of memory when a microSD card is used and a two megapixel camera with zoom and video recording.
Owners will also benefit from access to the online application store BlackBerry App World and a 3.5mm headphone jack to allow use of high-end stereo headsets.
The watch form factor has recently featured more and more in mobile phones and associated gadgets, with LG poised to release the LG GD910 this month to go alongside the already-available sWaP watch phone.
