Today Apple announced their earnings and sales for the holiday quarter of 2014. The company sold 74.5 million iPhones, and had strong earnings which were fueled by the newly released iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. While the information about Apple's financial situation is interesting for investors and analysts, it's really of no consequence to general consumers. However, Apple CEO Tim Cook made a statement during today's earnings call that is of great significance to anyone interested in Apple's upcoming smartwatch, the Apple Watch. 

Like the iPhone, the Apple watch was announced several months prior to its shipping date. Until today, the only information about when Apple Watch would be available was that it was coming in early 2015. While there's still no specific launch date, Cook stated that the development for the Apple Watch was proceeding according to schedule, and that the company expected to begin shipping it in April. Unfortunately, concrete information about the price of all the different models and the battery life of Apple Watch is still unknown. It will be interesting to see if more details get confirmed in the upcoming weeks and months as we get closer to April.

    You can tap your friends wrists! And draw hearts! Which will invariably mostly end up being used to draw wangs.

    Sounds like they are having trouble with the watch. Sometime in April is about the latest you can go while still maintaining "early 2015" timeframe. The rumor's about the horrible battery life seem carry more weight now.

    Check their release dates of their new products. They typically push it the very last of week of the season or month, depending on what they promise. That in itself tells us nothing about how things are shaping up.

    they didn't mention a season or a quarter, they just said Early 2015. Do you consider Mid April Early 2015? just curious
