LG have announced that their GD910 watch phone will begin shipping in Europe come July, initially on carrier Orange, before spreading to unnamed carriers in Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Latin America. The LG GD910 has a 1.43-inch touchscreen LCD and supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA, video calls and media playback.
At 13.9mm thick it’s perhaps straining how chunky you might want a watch to be, but it’s good for a cellphone. Since there’s Bluetooth inside you could also tether the GD910 to your MID, netbook or laptop for wireless data access; not quite as usable as a MiFi but a whole lot cooler.
Pricing will vary by region, but is likely to be on the high side. Still, we reckon there’ll be a core group of Dick Tracy fans who won’t be able to resist.
