Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Released
Samsung’s Galaxy Gear is now here. The wrist-worn gadget has a 1.63-inch AMOLED screen, 800 MHz processor, and 512MB of RAM. The smartwatch allows users to make phone calls, snap photos, and issue S Voice commands to their connected Samsung smartphones. Additionally, the Galaxy Gear will have some 70 applications customized for the smartwatch when it launches on September 25.
