Think the iPhone
is hot stuff? Think the Pre
was captured everyone's
imagination? How's about sporting a cellphone on your wrist
? We're not
talking about one of those fancy Bluetooth watches that communicated
with your phone, we're talking about a full-on watchphone. LG's GD910
has been making the rounds at major trade shows and such for over a
year now, but the time has finally come for it to make landfall on a
Hailed as the planet's first 3G touch watchphone, this timepiece
features a 1.43" tempered glass touchscreen, a 14mm thick chassis, a
fold fastening strap, all the features you expect of a watch (world
clock, stopwatch, alarm, etc.) and an IPX4 splash-resistant body.
Besides all that, it also packs a VGA camera, MP3 player, diary (yeah,
really!), an electronic dictionary and a svelte, fluid user interface.
Naturally, the device also has built-in Bluetooth, which enables it to
pair up with Bluetooth headsets and other devices. And unless you enjoy
talking into your wrist, you'll probably need such a headset. The
watchphone will be available for those with deep pockets starting this
week, but you'll need to be in France and a fan of Orange in order to
secure one. So, just how much will this cute little critter cost? Try €899
($1273) on a contract. We know, pretty steep! There's no word on when
this unit will head to other countries, but with a price tag like that,
we aren't sure too many folks will care.
