Perhaps no tech storyline has received more coverage since word leaked that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was planning to launch the latest update to its ultra-popular iPhone line of smartphones on Sept. 10. But Apple isn't the only player in the smart-device space with big plans for next month. According to reports, frenemy Samsung is planning to make a major announcement of its own that this time would vault it well ahead of its chief rival -- unveiling a smart watch of its own and doing so the very week before Apple's big announcement. In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner discusses Samsung's bold move and it's implications for the tech space as a whole.
