Rumors have been swirling about Apple and Samsung building smartwatches, but they’re not the only ones. One Chinese company is reportedly looking to get into the time-keeping game Firefox OS. Known for its e-readers and an Android-fueled smartwatch released last year, a subdivision of massive Chinese tech outfit Shanda called Guoke plans to sell a smartwatch in June called the Bambook Smart Watch. The Bambook will come in two flavors, according to TechNode. One will run Android, the other Firefox OS. Reportedly, the watch will cost more than $100, and will have an e-ink screen. Like Samsung, Shanda has its fingers in a lot of pies, including e-ink screens and Web services. Tech in Asia speculated that the smartwatch could be a big boon for the company, as a smartwatch could read you e-books and other digital literature.
