Latest Apple iWatch rumor has wearable sporting flexible OLED display from LG

Latest Apple iWatch rumor has wearable sporting flexible OLED display from LG
The latest rumor about the Apple iWatch comes out of Vietnam, and states that the timepiece will have a flexible OLED display produced by Korean manufacturer LG. In fact, LG will be the sole supplier of the part, according to the rumor. The device will be released in September, says those familiar with the project.

These so-called  "insiders" also say that earlier talk of two different screen-sizes for the iWatch is spot on. There will be a model featuring a 1.3 inch display, and one with a slightly larger 1.5 inch screen. These tipsters state that Apple plans on selling 9 million iWatches this year.

Recently, there has been some talk from at least one analyst questioning the existence of the Apple iWatch. Others say that the device does exist, but only as a prototype. Has Apple painted itself into a corner with talk about such a device, and now watches (no pun intended) as rivals bring smartwatches to the market?
The problem Apple has is that the longer it takes for it to bring an Apple iWatch to market, the larger the public's expectations for the device become.

Thanks for the tip!

I don't think the iWatch will match up to the moto 360

What are you basing this off of? Your just being a fanboy. The 360 does nothing special other than being round. It actually doesn't look as good in the real world as it does in the renders. I was excited till I saw it on the guy and girl arm. It looks chunky and not really that sleek. Also, there is no sensors for fitness or anything. It's just a digital round watch.

It's a watch that is smart and that is a better strategy than a glorified health band. The people that would want the 360 are regular people, the target market for the iWatch looks to be fitness buffs and that is it. Regardless of looks, it seems Apple is only making a really dumb phone for the wrist while moto is making a watch that has smart features. I would bet on the latter rather than the former.

And it will be over priced like all their other products. 360 simple yet amazing

Maybe overpriced for you. Oh and don't think that motto 360 will be cheap.
