Pebble’s business is booming, and they are looking to bring more goodies this year. Meanwhile, Saygus V2 enters the market and Amazon is said to purchase RadioShack stores.
Pebble is doing better than ever. The little start-up that could didn’t seem like such a huge player when they entered the market via Kickstarter, in 2012. They have recently sold their 1 millionth device and they are aiming for an even better 2015.
What comes next? CEO Eric Migicovsky tells The Verge they are looking to bring new hardware and software this year. We don’t know much about the hardware, but Eric Migicovsky goes into a tiny bit of detail on the software.
“We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch. It doesn’t look like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone.” -Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky
The phone is not cheap, but remember that it is one hell of a smartphone. This phone is packed with powerful specs to the teeth. Do go ahead and check out our hands-on coverage on the Saygus V2 to see what this phone is all about.
Opinion: Who is buying one of these? I think it’s an amazing phone, I just don’t know how well this company will do with updates. I guess it’s something we will see with time.
It’s no news RadioShack is going straight down the dran. They have been for a long time, and I am actually surprised the company is still going. It may soon come to an end, hough, as RadioShack is said to be planning on filing for bankruptcy. What will happen with all the retail locations?
The latest reports say Amazon is thinking about grabbing some of them and using them as its own retail locations. These stores would provide an environment where people can check out Amazon’s products, as well as working as the perfect pick up and delivery locations.
Opinion: It will be interesting to see how Amazon works in brick-and-mortar operations. They have stayed internet-exclusive until very recently. Can Amazon handle actual stores as well as they handle their online business?
