Black Eyed Peas singer and Hip hop artists Will.i.am has finally unveiled the smart “cuff” he has been working on for over two years with his consumer electronics company, i.am+. It is called the Puls and its basically a wearable wristband that tells time, but the most interesting things is that it’s not marketed as a watch .The Puls has 16GB of storage onboard, 1GB of RAM, GPS, a battery that goes around the bracelet, pedometer and accelerometer, all powered by an Android-based platform and a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It connects to the internet not only via WiFi, but also via 3G, and for now is targeted for the US and UK.
There is no pricing or release information available for the Puls. The device has been repeatedly delayed this year, with planned release slipping from the spring to the summer to “around the holidays.” It will be available in black, white, pink, and blue. There will also be a solid-gold Puls and one with gold and diamonds, Will.i.am said.
