Yes! You have read it right. The world’s first wrist tablet is actually here. Earlier we saw Neptune Pine, which is a huge watch that also works as a phone. This wearable tablet is named Rufus Cuff. It has a 3.2 inch screen and it has been much more than just a smartphone since its launch in 2014.According to Rufus Labs, “it ends the era of the watch and ushers in the wrist communicator.”
Sam Murray from Cheapcontractphones.org.uk commented on the Wrist Tablet and was less than impressed: “The Rufus Cuff is sadly another wearable gimmick that I can’t see taking off. You may as well just mount your phone to your wrist. The product itself isn’t refined enough either, looking bulky and poorly made. I’m not sure we’ll be hearing about this particular device again.
This wearable wrist tablet runs on a TI Cortex A9 processor. It has a front facing camera for taking pictures and videos. It also offers GPS and Wifi. It has a 1,175 mAh battery. The wrist tablet has dual microphones and a built-in speaker. It supports Bluetooth and you can also take calls through it by using an iPhone. It runs on Android Kit Kat. It works with Android and iOS both and it plans on introducing Windows and Blackberry devices in the coming future. You can easily download apps on it as it runs on Android.You would not even need your smartphone if you are wearing Rufus Cuff other than when you would want to attend a call. The best thing about Rufus Cuff is that it is water resistant so you can enjoy using it even when it is raining. It not only supports English but many other languages as well. It has a built-in LED for different alerts and notifications. Rufus Labs announced, “Rufus Labs is offering you swappable bands in a variety of colors and band styles, including the sport band (designed with industrial grade Velcro) and the Exo (a ruggedized protective case that makes your Rufus Cuff dust, water, and shock-proof).
Gabe Grifoni who is the co-founder and CEO of Rufus Labs explained to USA Today about how Rufus Cuff is different from any other smartwatch. He said, “It’s not just a glorified notification center, we eventually see everyone ditching their phones.” He said that many people would love the idea of a wearable tablet, especially those people who want to know what is happening every second by just clicking on the wearable wrist tablet. He further explained confidently, “This will replace the need for smartphones, wallets, watches, fitness trackers, everything.” Rufus Cuff comes in three different versions depending on the internal storage. You can order it for $249 or more depending on which version you opt for (16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB).
