XcelMobility to launch new smartwatch in China
Sep 23, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
XcelMobility Inc., a developer of mobile internet products and services, has announced that it is launching a wearable computing device developed by its consortium of mobile technology players. The new smartwatch, called the CCWatch, is a wearable computing device powered by a 1.3 gigahertz dual core processor. XcelMobility is targeting December 1, 2013 as the date of the official launch in China.
Specifically designed for the Chinese market, the device will incorporate the world's first Mandarin voice command native language interface. With this capability, along with the device's access to the Google Play App store and its underlying LBS technology, it will meet China's strong demand for immediate access to today's online applications for gaming, entertainment and other social interactive platforms, the company said.
The CCWatch will reportedly access the internet through XcelMobility's cloud network. Additional functions of the smartwatch will include a phone, camera, GPS, notifications, Android apps, LBS tracker, SOS device and monitoring.
"According to Credit Suisse's recent research report on wearable computing, the rapidly growing wearable computing market is estimated to reach over $42 billion over the next three to five years," commented Ron Strauss, Executive Chairman of the Board of XcelMobility, Inc.
"We strategically launched the smartwatch in China because it is currently driving the market's rapid adoption of this exciting technology. Flurry recently reported that China now accounts for 24% of all connected devices in use worldwide. By introducing the first version of our smartwatch with a Mandarin command voice system, we can effectively provide China with the most advanced, functional and interactive wearable computing device on the market today."
