Apple is left in the lurch with the Galaxy Gear now shipping for $300
Early adopters have the latest smart watch gadget on their arms and Samsung is leading the pack again with the Galaxy Gear, shipping in 6 colors
Samsung has shipped double the Apple number of phones, most of them 5&Prime. It is launching a gorgeous curved phone, and the latest show-your-status-device – the Galaxy Gear.

“At the Samsung Developer Conference here, many of the 1,300 independent developers were wearing smartwatch devices on their wrists, though not all were the $300 Galaxy Gear version Samsung launched recently to pair with Galaxy devices like the Note 3.

But both said they would prefer the Gear device instead because it has a microphone and speaker for making voice calls. (The Sony device does not do that.)” ComputerWorld
