Rumors about potential Apple iWatch flare again

Rumors about potential Apple iWatch flare again Apple's oft-rumored 'iWatch' smart watch is back in the news again, this time with a new partner.
The latest rumor, via the usual supply chain sources, claim Apple and Intel are building a Bluetooth 4.0-enabled smart watch for release next year.

Most importantly for potential buyers, the watch will sync perfectly with iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.

The device will have a 1.5-inch OLED display with ITO coating, leading to less glare and smudging. The device would also have some sort of version of Siri.

It is unclear what place Intel would have in the equation, unless Apple decides to use Intel's upcoming energy-efficient mobile Celeron processors.

In regard to the iWatch, I was dreaming about this very thing last night, LOL. ANY iWatch will have to have Siri. You would otherwise need a toothpick or pencil tip to use any sort of keypad on an iWatch so Siri or some other voice-recognition app is a prerequisite.

This sounds really cool. It might be the next big thing and replace older technology like cellular phones!

"Hey, that's a nice watch!"
