Orange calls up LG watchphone
UK sales to start next month
Following months of Dick Tracy jokes and speculation over its launch, LG has finally confirmed that its watchphone will be available in the UK next month.
LG's GD910: in the UK next month
The LG Touchscreen Watch Phone – also know as the GD910 – will be sold by Orange in the UK, but only for a “limited time period”.
Orange has yet to confirm how much the futuristic timepiece will cost, but it has previously been speculated that the device will cost about £1000 ($1458/€1140).
The network operator said that the "handcrafted" device will be available “at an exclusive price point” – which is undoubtedly code for 'expensive' – on either pay-as-you-go or SIM-only options.
An integrated camera lets the GD910’s wearer make video calls over a 3G connection of up to 7.2Mb/s. The device also features voice recognition, text-to-speech functionality, Bluetooth, an MP3 player and 1.4in touch-sensitive screen. ®
