    Most of our smartwatch interest at the moment is focused on products coming from companies that already manufacture smartphones: Apple, Samsung, and the like. We expect these models to be a little more polished than the more general-purpose smarwatches coming from various upstarts. Still, models like the Pebble and the new Qualcomm Toq make it clear that these other players are still very much worth paying attention to. Today we hear rumors of a smartwatch in the works from Nike, a company already familiar with wearable tech thanks to its FuelBand fitness trackers. Supposedly, Nike is ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk bout some BlackBerry results along with the official divorce of Beats and HTC. Then we talk about Nokia smartphones getting hover interaction according to new patents. Google is next as an Open Project demo shows us how we can share our smartphone display with other monitors in an easy fashion. We then continue with the iPad 5 and some thickness changes according to leaks, aside from other leaks pointing to a gold iPad mini with Touch ID, but missing a more important feature. We end today's show talking about iOS 7.0.2, and Apple's recent hire of ...

    Smartphones can be a great tool for keeping track of exercise, whether that's using their GPS receivers to document runs or connecting with devices like heart rate monitors. Last year, Nike launched its own solution, a wristband-based accelerometer called the FuelBand. While users can upload their data to Nike's personal tracking website via there computers, or with an iOS app, there hasn't been a similar version available for Android. Despite ongoing assurances that such an Android app was forthcoming, Nike has now changed its tune, announcing that it is not working on any Android ...
