RIM launching BlackBerry headset and wristwatch

RIM's Vice President, Antoine Boucher, has confirmed that a BlackBerry-branded Bluetooth headset and wristwatch are in the works for the company.

The headset will be called the "Alpha 1" and come in a black chrome shell with noise reduction technology for conversations in noisy places. You'll be able to stream music to it, and use it for voice commands in navigation apps.

Then there's the watch. Scant detail's available right now, but we do know that it'll connect via Bluetooth to your handset and alert you of emails, IMs, texts, and tweets from its face. There's no word on pricing or availability for either, but we'll keep you posted of anything we hear.
