Smartwatches by LG for Google? That’s the scuttlebutt

The latest rumor is that the South Korean device manufacturer will build the competition for the iWatch for the tech giant.

Recent news published in The Wall Street Journal has revealed that Google is on its way to creating smartwatches, and that it is LG that is the company behind their manufacture.

This will considerably expand the hardware partnership between Google and LG.

The news publication said that it obtained the information about the Google smartwatches in Barcelona, through a “person familiar with the situation”. This will bring both industry giants into the wearable technology domain in a tremendous way. That said, LG may not be the only manufacturer that will be involved in making the wrist worn devices.

It might be that the Google smartwatches will use a strategy similar to that used for its Nexus devices.

Google’s Nexus tablets and smartphones draw hardware from more than one company. It wouldn’t be unheard of for it to do the same for its wearable tech, as well. None of this will be revealed for certain until some point in March, when it is rumored – according to CNET – that Google will be unveiling the operating system. That said, the actual reveal for the mobile devices, themselves, will likely not be until June at their I/O conference.

Similar details have been showing up online in many places that have been accurate with their predictions in the past.Smartwatches- Wearable Technology

This is not the first that the world has heard of a smartwatch device from Google. Reports began to make their way into the mainstream press last October, when they were saying that these gadgets could be unveiled within the upcoming months.

Other predictions that are being made about these wearable tech gadgets are that they will help to place a more powerful focus on glanceable information and on Google Now. However, at this point in the game, very little else is known about what the device will entail. Once Google does make its entry into the market, it will have competition from other smartwatches that are already on their way to establishing themselves, such as Galaxy Gear and Pebble, as well as the rumored iWatch from Apple.

Mobile printer from LG is improved over predecessor

This latest version of the device is lighter, more compact, and produces twice the number of prints.

LG has now developed a new version of its mobile printer, the Pocket Photo 2.0, that is being applauded a s a considerable improvement over the design and capabilities of its predecessor.

This device has improved on several different levels over the one that came before it.

The Pocket Photo 2.0 mobile printer is lighter than the first one, is more compact, which makes it easier to carry around, but it will also print twice the number of photos that its predecessor was capable of producing. For every charge, this little machine is capable of printing thirty prints. Furthermore, the developers have been able to shave a half hour off its charge time.

The mobile printer may be an LG device, but it is compatible with several operating systems.

The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 is compatible with Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows, and can produce wireless printing through near field communication (NFC technology) and even through Bluetooth connectivity. The older version of this device was capable of supporting only NFC for Android smartphones, which had considerably limited its compatibility.

The printouts produced by this product feature a resolution of 313 dpi, and they measure 51 by 76 millimeters. It is now accompanied by an enhanced companion app that comes with a brand new set of features, including new filter effects and an option for augmenting frames. This model uses Zink printing technology, and its design has eliminated the need to have to replace ink, which is a very costly part of many printing devices.

This mobile printer is already available on retail shelves in China and will work its way around the rest of the world throughout this year. It is expected that the Pocket Photo 2.0 will also be showcased in Las Vegas at the CES 2014, which will run from January 7 through to January 10. Its increased compatibility with smartphones and other devices, as well as its more practical features could make it a considerable hit and will be certain to draw a lot of attention.
