Apple Watch won't ship before April, says Tim Cook
Apple today posted its fiscal Q1 2015 earnings, the highlight here being a record-breaking 74.5 million iPhones sold from October to December 2014. Besides that, CEO Tim Cook also had some insite on the Apple Watch availability, stating that it would start shipping in April.

That's actually later that it was previously anticipated. When the Apple Watch was first announced, Tim Cook said that the device would be released in "early 2015."

An April release would put the Apple Watch arrival into the second quarter of the year, so it looks like Apple still has a lot of work to do before its Watch is ready to embrace consumers' wrists.

As you may have heard, the Apple Watch will be quite pricey. The cheapest model will cost $349. Some versions, which has a case crafted from 18k-carat gold, will end up costing thousands of dollars. It's said that the Apple Watch will have a powerful processor (at least for a smartwatch), as well as a Retina-class display. Still the battery life remains the biggest obstacle for the wearable, with a requirement for daily recharging

Would you consider picking up an Apple Watch at such a high price? Or have you switched to one of the many Android Wear devices in the market?
