LG trumpets 3G wristphone
'Flattop' Jones surrenders
LG Electronics has lately been trumpeting its plans to debut a 3G wristwatch phone with a touch screen technology at the Consumer Electronics show in January.
The LG-GD910 watch phone is expected to first be punted in Europe next year, although an exact release date has yet to be determined.
handset wristset will sport a 1.43-inch (3.63-cm) screen used as a keypad for making calls or fiddling with high speed internet (apparently with tiny fingers). It will also have a camera and speaker built in for video calls and still shots.
Would you believe it's a watchphone?
Other features include MP3 playback, Bluetooth, text-to-speech commands, speaker phone, and some assurance that unlike a phone headset, people on the street won't have to calculate whether you're a dangerous lunatic screaming something about your precious Mr. Shangles' liver medicine into the thin air.
While there's no specific mention of it, we'd like to think the wrist watch phone will also tell time. That would be terrifically convenient.
More details can doubtlessly arrive when CES rolls into town. ®
It must be that time.
I feel spurred into action now. Time to stick a new CR2032 into my Casio camera watch and do some covert* photography.
*Ok, as covert as blatantly pointing your watch at something while swearing and repeatedly stabbing the large button on the front can be.
I've still got my Casio Remote Control Watch handy :)
Was much fun playing with the TVs mid-video at school all those years ago, teehee
Must get a new strap and battery
Looks a bit like the...
....2014 model of the UK ID 'card'.
Your handy Citizen Watch [*] comes complete with:
- MP3 player
- Camera 
- Calculator, planner and calendar
- GPS 
- Debit card facilities
- Passport data
- UK ID card data
- Voting record and preferences
- Drivers License data
- McDonalds drive-thru loyalty card
Just swipe as you go.
But please, don't ever try and remove it!!!
[*] Pun intended
 So we can see YOU
 So we can see you AND know where you are
My thoughts exactly. I was thinking along the lines of a Blakes Seven braclet with display, Plenty of room there for a larger touch screen(s) around the wrist or touch pad...
Just snap it on.
"we'd like to think the wrist watch phone will also tell time."
Time will tell.
