Microsoft has become the latest major consumer electronics company to see its plans for a smartwatch leak ahead of any official announcement. While Samsung remains the only company to publicly confirm that it is working on a next-generation smartwatch, half a dozen different news organizations have reported various details surrounding an imminent “iWatch” from Apple that may launch later this year. Now, The Wall Street Journal reports that Microsoft is also toying with the idea of launching its own smartwatch, and it is working with partners in the Far East to source components. The report provides no other details, though it notes that Microsoft does not currently have firm plans to launch the device, so it may never see the light of day.
