In a recent interview with CNBC, Eric Migicovsky, co-founder and CEO of Pebble, dodged questions about a potential acquisition by Apple Inc., the Cupertino, California-based computer giant known to be testing an “iWatch” internally.
The Pebble E-Paper Watch is a new product that saw its inception on Kickstarter. It has a 1.26-inch 144 × 168 pixels black and white LCD display with backlighting, a three-axis accelerometer, a vibrating motor, a magnetometer, and ambient light sensors.
It communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth 4.0 with iOS and Android devices to display things like messages, Tweets and Facebook updates (some, via hacks).
Apple is said to be attempting to create a similar product using state-of-the-art technologies, such as bendable glass, advanced underlying software and features, a color display, etc.
Asked to comment on a potential acquisition by Apple, Eric Migicovsky, co-founder and CEO of Pebble said, “I can't comment on anything like that, unfortunately.”
Why so secretive Eric? Signed any NDAs recently?
