So that new wearable device Apple is introducing on September 9?
It’s going to be a while before anyone is actually wearing it.
Sources in position to know tell me it won’t arrive at market
for a few months. “It’s not shipping anytime soon,” said
one. So when does Apple plan to ship its eagerly anticipated
wearable? That’s not clear, but my understanding is that we’re
unlikely to see it at retail until after the holiday season —
think early 2015.
If true, why? I’m guessing something similar to why they pre-announced the original iPhone — otherwise it would leak through regulatory filings with various governments around the world. Plus, they have no worries about the Osborne Effect with a new product category.
