Tim Cook Says Apple Watch Will Ship in April

Apple WatchApple CEO Tim Cook said on Tuesday that Apple will ship its highly anticipated Apple Watch in April. Until now, we've only had an "early 2015" timeline, making Mr. Cook's comments the first hard news on a shipping date for the device.

Mr. Cook made the comment during opening remarks for his company's quarterly conference call with analysts. He did not offer a specific date, but said that development for the device was "right on schedule."

Apple Watch is the company's first foray into wearable computing, and it's the first device Apple has developed from the ground up without the late Steve Job's direct involvement.
