Tom Warren of The Verge reports:
Microsoft’s prototype smartwatch testing has moved over to its Surface team. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s Surface plans have revealed to The Verge that the company is now prototyping devices directly under the Surface team as the firm moves its wrist-worn device closer to reality.
Microsoft joins the likes of Apple, Google and Samsung as companies that are allegedly working on wearable wristband technologies. Pebble most recently hit the market, and we could see products like the so-called “iWatch” and “Surface Watch” follow suit by later this year or early 2014.
