After months of speculation, Orange France have confirmed pricing for the LG GD910 watch phone. Originally tipped to cost in excess of £1,000 ($1,676), the GD910 has been listed on the carrier's site from €399 ($573) with a new 12- or 24-month contract.

Update: Orange France have changed their press release, to confirm that the LG GD910 starts from €899 ($1,290) rather than €399 as it originally suggested.

You can't accuse UK carrier Orange of under-promoting the upcoming LG GD910 watch phone; the wrist-worn video phone isn't expected to hit shelves until August, but they've released a demo clip of the device in action.  Nothing groundbreaking is on show, but it's still impressive to see a two-way video call on such a small handset.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

Well another week has come and gone as time steadily marches on and like every other week here on SlashGear, it has been a busy one. Poor old Toshiba took the old adage "if you can’t beat them, join them" seriously on Monday and announced that it would be launching its own Blu-ray player by the end of 2009. That had to be hard to swallow for the execs who bet it all on HD DVD only to be defeated by Blu-ray. Also on Monday the slick HP Mini 5101 netbooks tipped up starting from $399. I'm not convinced we need another netbook on the market right now personally.

Orange Toshiba TG01 Review

Orange Toshiba TG01 Review

With product announcements and launches often so far apart, there's always the risk that another company will steal your thunder.  Toshiba, though, have managed to pilot their TG01 Windows Mobile smartphone to market still wearing the "biggest screen" and "first Snapdragon" crowns.  Problem is, in doing so they've arrived well in advance of Microsoft's new mobile platform.  Can the Toshiba TG01 still deliver enough to seize not only the Windows Mobile 6.1 top-spot, but push the iPhone off its pedestal?  SlashGear has been finding out.

As you've probably seen, Orange launched the Toshiba TG01 today, and SlashGear went along to the launch event 31 floors above the city of London.  There's not much about this smartphone we didn't already know - after all, we were also there in February when it officially debuted - but today was an opportunity to play with the Orange branded version and the latest firmware.  Read on for our first impressions, plus a hands-on gallery, video demo, and comparison shots with what up until now has been the Windows Mobile heavyweight, HTC's Touch HD.

LG GD910 Watch Phone to get August Orange UK release

Toshiba TG01 “coming soon” to Orange UK

Given that we're going to the official UK launch event on July 9th, it comes as little surprise to see Toshiba's TG01 Windows Mobile smartphone appear on the site of carrier Orange UK.  Listed as "coming soon", the 4.1-inch touchscreen has no pricing or specific availability given, but we'd expect all that to change by the end of next week.

Orange offers inexpensive Vegas touchscreen phone

Orange offers inexpensive Vegas touchscreen phone

Sometimes, all we need is the bare essentials and that's precisely what Orange, the UK wireless provider, is offering with their Vegas phone. It's small, inexpensive and provides a touchscreen on a device that normally wouldn't have one.

The Vegas has a 2.4-inch touch display. There's a standard 1.3-megapixel camera, a built-in speaker, a microSD memory card slot with 64MB of built-in storage, Bluetooth and support for MP3 files and FM radio.

It also has a headphone jack and GPRS networking, rather than 3G. You can get the Vegas phone from Orange now for just the equivalent of $72 in either pink or black color options. This phone is sold on a pay-as-you-go plan. There's no doubt this phone is basic, but it offers some of that highly-coveted touch appeal for a fraction of the cost.
