    The fact is that there is goldfinger, a device, which kinda sounds like an accessory, has no buttons, will be revealed at build.... All coincidence?

    gold finger as in not really necessary... You can live with a normal finger, gold just makes it exotic.

    As much as I want this to be true I think it is a case of simply seeing what you want to see. Remember the "time machine" campaign for the Lumia 900?

    Wearables from Nokia won't be until later this year, not at Build. But they may make some app announcements.

    I was just thinking that Daniel usually says something for ridicules threads like these by saying fake or something, sadly he says that this is not a watch, but as lots of people here suggested that these are apps, just like the rest of the logos are. Hope they are cool apps.

    I don't expect a smartwatch from Nokia for this event. I mean, MixRadio, Maps, etc. is software. I think it will be something like a clock app. (what sounds a bit disappointing lol)

    Gold finger is a James bond reference, just like money penny and martini.

    just saying, you can't change the default messeging app, that was wrongly interpreted.
    What about this?

    Looks like an option to change the default messaging app to me :P

    Yeah, but since when was a clock app considered a thing.... it will be very funny if they said well we made you a clock app, or an alarm app, unless its something out of the world.

    On the other hand, the Globe logo, to me looks like something that has to do with the web browser.... I cant wait....

    Watch WPCs Podcast, Daniel clearly says that this was misunderstood, this has something to do with the carriers, like massage centres maybe.

    I am on your boat, Goldfinger is a wearable. There is no way that Android Wear was developed without Microsoft or Nokia's knowledge. The new Microsoft needs to be on the edge of innovation, not lagging behind like the old Microsoft. Clock = Watch Can't think of any other meaning to the hint...

    If WP gets an alarm app that I could set for 2 hours later and still make it to work on time, I'd be all over it! That would indeed be "something out of the world."

    Just realised that my Nokia 100 has the same clock icon in the clock app :P

    EDIT: The NOKIA X has the same clock app icon and the same globe icon for the browser app.

    The event is called "moreLumia" so no, I'm sure it's not more Android. Those are just NOKIA's icons, they can use them across all their platforms. The globe is probably just pointing for new online features coming, considering that I don't think NOKIA will introduce a new browser.

    Surely the likely thing is that the next firmware from Nokia will enable support for an existing smart watch? Maybe native Pebble support for all Lumia devices running the Blue firmware.

    One can only hope. I'm using a Nexus 5 at the moment until we get an update that'll allow Smartwatches like the Pebble to work fully with Windows Phone. After having had a Pebble for three months, I can't go back to not having notifications on my watch, it really is an awesome convenience.
