A previous tweet posted an image of a survey claiming that one-third of smartphone owners want a smartwatch. Another tweet touted that Sony launched the first "smart" watch in 2007. And still another said: "Wearable tech is in our DNA. Remember WALKMAN, now...?"
All of the tweets carry hashtags of #itstime and #MAE13 (which stands for Mobile Asia Expo 2013).
The smartphone arena has gotten more crowded since. The company may be looking to outrival its rivals with an all-new watch springing up a host of new features.
