LG GD910 watchphone out on Orange next month


LG and Orange have taken a fair old while to get their famous watchphone to market after its introduction at MWC earlier this year. I went off the idea the minute I heard it cost £1,000 and, seeing as Orange is only going to offer the wristset for PAYG or SIM only for a limited time, it appears as if you’re going to have to stump up for the full grand rather than rely on a subsidised 300-month contract.

The GD910 watch comes with a Bluetooth headset, built-in speaker, touchscreen and supports HSDPA and video calls. It’s out in August provided you can a) afford one and b) are mentally strong enough to actually use one in public. Come on, admit it. It looks like fun. Wait for the small breaking of your heart when the price point is officially announced.

CES 2009: LG showing off prototype LG-GD910 watch-phone hybrid device


When I was a wee nipper, I used to talk into my watch and imagine that my friends could hear me. They invariably couldn’t, which is probably just as well, but perhaps someone heard me, and now they work for LG. The LG-GD910 is basically a phone that you wear on your wrist.

As you can imagine, there’s not much in the way of features – “you can wear it on your wrist” being top of the pile. Additionally, though, it’s waterproof, weighs 85 grams, and has voice calling, text to speech, and stereo Bluetooth, which officially makes it better than the iPhone, in one category at least. It’ll have three real buttons, a touchscreen, and weigh 85g. Due for release “this year”.
