LG have confirmed that their 3G cellphone watch, the LG GD910, is going into production. The concept was originally demonstrated as a concept at CES 2008 in January, but will be among the products on-show by the company at CES 2009 next month. In addition to 7.2 Mbps HSDPA compatibility, the GD910 has a 1.43-inch touchscreen and a front-mounted camera for video calls or still/video capture.
The metal casing and curved glass create a body just 13.9mm thick, and if you’re not keen on prodding at the display then you’ll be pleased to hear that the GD910 supports voice-dialling and speech recognition for TTS (Text To Speech) composition of text messages. It’s also waterproof, has a speakerphone and an MP3 player.
Happily there’s also Bluetooth, hopefully with support for dial-up internet access profiles. That way you could forget carrying around a USB 3G modem and instead tether your laptop/MID/UMPC/netbook to your cellphone watch wirelessly. The LG GD910 will go on sale in Europe sometime in 2009, price and precise date unknown.
