Apple Watch Shipping in April

Jason Snell, writing at Six Colors following Apple's earnings call last week:

“Development for Apple Watch is right on schedule, and we expect to be shipping in April,” he [CEO Tim Cook] said during a conference call with analysts following the company’s announcement of record profits. “Developers are hard at work on apps, notifications, and information summaries that we call ‘glances,’ all designed specifically for the Watch’s user interface. The creativity and software innovation going on around Apple Watch is incredibly exciting, and we can’t wait for our customers to experience them when Apple Watch becomes available.”


What we had been saying is ‘early 2015,’” he said. “We sort of look at the year and think of ‘early’ as the first four months, ‘mid’ as the next four months, and ‘late’ is the final four months. And so to us, it’s within the range. It’s basically when we thought.”

I'm so excited for Apple Watch to come out, so this is good news.

I've seen a couple reports on Twitter that people are seeing the Watch out in the wild. I expect an event to happen sooner than later. The next few months are going to be exciting.
