A team in Moscow has embarked on the mission of bringing the Windows Phone UI that we all know and love to a stylish yet useful “smartwatch” titled the “Gnomio”. Made exclusively for the Windows Phone 8 platform, Gnomio watches will connect via Bluetooth to the Windows Phone 8 of your choice, notifying you through soft vibration about incoming calls, emails and messages. It is supposed to have an ARM-based processor inside with a clock speed of 270 MHz.
The device is also supposed to have 64 MB of RAM and eight GB of storage, with a 1.54 inch touch screen that has a resolution of 240x240. The team claims that they started development of Gnomio in March 2012, and that the hardware work is reportedly completed but software development is still proceeding. The team claims that if they received their funding they will begin shipment of the watches to their backers in April 2013.
The Gnomio project is now seeking $100,000 with 68 days to go in their campaign. As with all crowd sourced projects, there is no guarantee that the watch will be delivered even if the team reaches their goal.
