    Pretty much! Op you should be more worried about blackberry's ability to stay alive in the handset business. I'm expecting horrible sales results from their upcoming quarterly report.

    True. I don't believe that article one bit. Just find it odd that a bb fanboy/girl would post the article without adding his/her 2 cents.

    They had direct contact from within Apple and I'll be more than glad too add my 2 cents. I find it strange how they can't get enough screens made yet they made how many screens for the Ipad and Iphone? In my opinion, I think the survey that was taken scared Apple in a way. 69% of Americans don't want an Apple Watch which is a high number. I feel that Apple is jumping the gun on the watch like BlackBerry did with the Z10. Look how that turned out to, not good.

    I'll be sure to revisit this thread once Apple post massive sales for the first week.

    Crap rumors like the OP posted about come out prior to every device Apple has released at least since I started paying attention with the release of the iPhone4 on Verizon... Every one is rumored to be doomed to fail. We all know the reality. And in all likelihood, the watch will leave detractors like the OP nonplussed.

    News in news no matter what and if Apple sells a ton of watches, congrats! But either way, everyone needs to know the full news.

    You have a view of "negative" that's in a class by itself. Any ol' rumor will get you wee-wee'd up to run here and post... I'll stick to reality.

    Personally, I was psyched about the watch from the moment I saw it, and I plan on getting one, so I'm not a "hater". But I do have my worries about how well this product will do.

    The mid-range watches are very expensive. The watch doesn't extend the market, but is looking for extra funds from people who already had to buy an expensive phone. It has a feel of self-indulgence - hundreds of dollars to save you having to pull your phone from your pocket. And young people have literally zero interest.

    And here's another killer problem: you don't want to wear exactly the same watch as everyone else. It's embarrassing. And Apple solved this brilliantly by having dozens of styles. But then they priced the mid-range models so incredibly high, that almost everyone is looking at the same black-strap entry model.

    Even if true, I think Apple will still sell plenty and surpass all total sales of any competitor before it. Even if 10% of existing Apple users buy the watch, it would still be a success. China alone would be enough...we will see.

    So 31% of 300 million initially want an Apple watch. 93 million sales scares Apple? I think that they will take those numbers initially. At that isn't even counting overseas sales.

    Some folks are claiming a typical Apple artificial scarcity marketing strategy to hype up the Watch, and if true, I think it is a brilliant idea to keep consumers interested on a 6 months release.

    I'm not terribly sold the Apple Watch in either of It's editions (no pup intended) will create extremely high demand. I think there's simply too many combinations and the product is simply not proven. It's the first Apple product EVER to absolutely not be advertised as a necessity save for maybe the Apple TV.

    Most tech is unnecessary. New tech is nearly universally unnecessary.

    Calling this "full news" would be like me making a blog entry online randomly saying "Apple distributing HIV with every iPhone sold..." and calling it the "full news". You've defined your existence within this community...don't be surprised when 99% of the members here laugh or scoff at your pitiful attempts at spreading this drivel as "news".

    LOL!!!!!! I needed something to read while at the metro platform so I finally clicked on this set of world class hard hitting Pulitzer award winning "News" and I had a good time with the last paragraph:
    " It's unclear if UDN Mobile's report is correct, but even if it is accurate, supply chain activities aren't always a clear indicator of Apple's plans for future products. Taiwanese publications like DigiTimes frequently publish reports like these that don't always reflect factual information about Apple's products.*"
    Translation-we wrote this as something you could read while in the loo. We've got nothing factual to base it on and the source has been wrong before.
