Possible RIM’s BlackBerry watch pictured

RIM is apparently working on their next generation mobile devices and one such path is following Sony Ericsson. Rumors are floating that RIM is working on a new bluetooth supported watch to go with its devices. To prove it, Evan over at Crackberry was able to get some images. Now, it remains to be seen if these are truly the images of the RIM watch or fake. Also, RIM has not made any announcement on it yet so we don’t know when it will be launched if at all.

You might recall that RIM was rumored to be following down Sony Ericsson’s path of branded Bluetooth watches to accompany its phones, and now, it looks like we might have the first real renderings of the final product before our eyes. This here wrist candy is possibly called the “inPulse” (not to be confused with Verizon’s similarly-named prepaid offering), featuring an OLED display, real-time message preview, and presumably some sort of glanceable caller ID to make needlessly pulling your Tour out of its holster a thing of the past. Interestingly, it seems like the watch isn’t being developed in-house — instead, work has been farmed out to some company dedicated to the BlackBerry aftermarket with an official announcement expected “soon.” As far as we know, Sony Ericsson’s watches — which arguably look nicer on account of their analog / digital hybrid design — haven’t been hot sellers, but who knows, maybe RIM’s got some neat tricks up its sleeve with this one.

[Thanks, Evan]
