The Samsung Galaxy Gear

The Samsung Galaxy Gear

Samsung does seem to have made a decent stab into the world of smartwatches, and it was not too long ago that whispers went around touting that Samsung intends to roll out a 3G enabled version of its Gear smartwatch over in South Korea, where this particular intelligent timepiece is supposed to carry the moniker of the Samsung Gear Solo. Well, apparently Samsung had already filed a trademark application with the USPTO this past April 4th for the name Gear Solo, and not only that, they also want to own the trademark for the name “Samsung Gear Now” to boot.

No prizes for guessing that Samsung Gear Now could very well be another name for a different smartwatch, or could it be a name for the same smartwatch, albeit having it released in a different country or area?

The Samsung Gear Solo allegedly supports SIM cards, which means it is also able to function as a handset all by itself, letting you make a phone call to another person ala Dick Tracy without having to pair it up to a different Samsung device in the first place. If that were to be the case, then chances are pretty good that the Gear Solo will also run on the Tizen platform ala the Samsung Gear 2.
