WIMM Labs recently announced a wearable Android-based reference platform and software development kit designed for mobile, sports, health, fashion, finance and consumer electronics applications.
The WIMM One platform feature a 1.4″ Bi-modal display, a capacitive touch screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, a magnetometer, audible and tactile alerts, up to 32GB memory. It is water-resistant, its dimensions are 32×36×12.5mm and it only weights 22g. Wimm Labs also said the device supports GPS in their twitter account.
The platform is not currently available, but will be in Q3 2011.
The price would be between 200 USD and 2000 USD depending on the licensee according to Wimm Twitter account, with the Wimm One Developer Preview platform closer to the lower end which still makes it a relatively pricey platform.
Wimm Labs will also launch a store for applications and accessories later this Fall, where people will be able to find, purchase, and install Micro Apps for WIMM-powered devices. For a limited time, developers will receive 100% of the revenue (minus taxes and credit card fees) from the sale of their Micro Apps through WIMM.com.
In the meantime, developers can register to receive the SDK at http://www.wimm.com/software_developer.html and/or follow wimmdev on twitter to be alerted when the SDK is released.
