Watch phones have been on the market for a while, produced by third-rate hardware manufacturers and sold at sites such as ThinkGeek or IWantOneOfThose. Interestingly, LG thinks this has an expandable potential for the future and has announced its new 3G watch phone LG-GD910, it comes with a 1.4-inch touchscreen, text-to-speech capability, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radio and a music player. It’s 0.6 inches thick, water resistant, works over 3G HSDPA 7.2 data networks and also features video conferencing, voice and video calling – that’s alot that it can handle.
I guess it will certainly attract lots of attention if walking around with a watch to your face, talking like a spy agent. Though I don’t know how many would actually do that, because you can always connect it to a Bluetooth headset but there aren’t many other options!
The details of the new LG-GD910 will be showcased at the CES next month, further updates soon to come.
