Samsung wants to trademark the names "Gear Now" and "Gear Solo" in the US
posted by Florin T. / Apr 10, 2014, 8:49 PM
Just a few days ago, we heard that Samsung was allegedly planning to launch a 3G-capable version of its Gear smartwatch in Korea. Reportedly, the new smartwatch should be called Samsung Gear Solo.
We can now confirm that Samsung does intend to use the name Gear Solo, as we discovered a trademark application for it that was filed with the USPTO on April 4. On the same day, Samsung also filed a trademark application for the name “Samsung Gear Now.” We can only imagine that this could be used for yet another smartwatch.
The Samsung Gear Solo is supposed to support SIM cards, thus being capable of acting like a phone by itself - allowing you to make calls without pairing it to another Samsung device. Just like the Gear 2, the Gear Solo will most probably run Tizen.

Excuse me? You must have used the "Tip Us" feature. As you may know, PhoneArena has quite many writers, and we're not all receiving those tips. We're usually quite capable of finding our own news, you know? Also, searching the USPTO database is something that I've been doing for some time - it's not like only you have access to it. That being said, we're giving credit when due, but this is not the case.
