The existence of Apple’s alleged iWatch device remains unknown at this point in time, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from making their rounds, and if you were hoping to see such a device in 2013, think again. According to KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has had a pretty decent track record when it comes to Apple rumors and such, the earliest we might be able to see the alleged iWatch is only in 2014. So what’s the hold up, you ask?
Well according to Kuo, Apple might be finding it a bit hard to get enough resources to make an iOS version that will play nicely with the new form factor of the iWatch’s alleged 1.5” display. Considering that previous rumors had suggested that Apple is pulling members from the OS X team to help with iOS 7, we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple really couldn’t spare the manpower for another team to help shrink iOS down to fit on the device. Kuo also seems to believe that Apple will be modeling the first iWatch off the iPod nano design, which does make sense when it comes to watch sizes, is a bit disappointing as we might have expected something a little more different. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us later for more updates.

The Blackberry Bold 9900 and the Q10 both feature rounded edges as part of its design, although with the Porsche P’9881, the rounded edges were done away in favor of sharp and sleek lines instead. The Porsche P’9881 was essentially the Bold 9900 with a different body, and if you loved that design and were wondering if Blackberry and Porsche might team up for a Blackberry 10 device, well we guess you will just have to wait and see, but in the meantime CrackBerry forum member, DYLANHABKIRK, has managed to cook up a render of what a Blackberry 10 device with the Porsche P’9881 design might look like. As you can see, the concept does away with the physical navigation buttons at the top in favor of a larger display, and what looks like Blackberry 10 running in the background. It’s not too shabby and to be honest it looks pretty good – what do you guys think? Yay or nay on a Porsche Blackberry 10 device?
