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.

2009 could well be the year of the wristphone, at least for LG, which wants to become the leader in wearable devices.

LG’s GD910 wristphone will be available later this year, but a price hasn’t been announced. ®
