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.

Of course, the question we really want answered is how much the GD910 will cost when it launches. Early tips have consistently hovered around the £1,000 ($1,623) mark on an unsubsidized pre-pay contract, which instantly puts the GD910 out of reach of most would-be buyers. We’ve also heard talk that LG have limited supplies of the watch phone, lending it even more exclusivity.
Known specifications for the GD910 include a 1.43-inch capacitive touchscreen, 3G, Bluetooth and a front-facing video camera that you can see demonstrated in the clip below. We’re hoping to have more information on the watch phone soon.
