Steve Ballmer makes an appearance - on LG's wristphone

The watch-cum-phone, known as the GD910, was first seen at CES in Les Vegas last month. But during a presentation earlier today, an LG executive used the device to make a live video call to none other than Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer.

Although the pair clearly didn’t have a speech prepared for the demo, it at least demonstrated that the wristphone works – and it works well.
