Orange Charges Small Fortune For LG's GD910 Watchphone
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.
