Apple's September 9 event, Nexus X benchmarks, and HTC's 64-bit Android phone: weekly news round-up
Mark September 9 in your calendars, folks! There's an Apple event scheduled for that day, and we think we all know what its leitmotif is going to be. Chances are that the highly-anticipated iPhone 6 will be announced, but if rumors are to be believed, the phone won't be the only star of the show. Apple may also announce a wearable device - the long-rumored iWatch.

In other news, a phone labeled as the Nexus X and a tablet listed as the Nexus 9 got benchmarked last week. The results didn't only confirm that both devices would be quite capable. They also revealed some of their technical specifications.

Speaking of tech specs, we're about to witness the announcement of the HTC Desire 820, which will join the 64-bit league with its Snapdragon SoC. However, it won't be a high-end model. HTC's 64-bit handset will actually belong to the mid-range category.

I would not. You could get a new 4S for that money :P Still not worth it.

I would if it wasn't just a device that works only of you pair it with a smartphone. Meaning that if it made calls and text and other basic phone things via Siri and voice control. I think that would make a viable direction of smart watches. It will be with $400 or more if u didn't need a phone to make it fully functioning (limited maybe) but not need a phone at all.
