Orange Charges Small Fortune For LG's GD910 Watchphone

Orange Charges Small Fortune For LG's GD910 Watchphone

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 carrier.

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.

I think its not going to last longer as its LG made and its too expensive. If you say that its Nokia made then its different. On the other hand chinese model is out and going only for 70 pounds. See this http://www.domesticutilities.com/wp.htm . So i think it wont be popular in new generation

I bet you would look as dumb as people did with the sidetalking Nokia 1st gen Ngage. Although it could have the cool spy thing going for it if you are geeky enough.
