The future is here. The Korean electronics giant LG is scheduled to launch the LG GD910 “watchphone” in UK starting this August. Although a cellphone integrated in a watch is not exactly something new, the commercial success for products like these has not been much. To be precise very few companies have actually tried selling these phones (or watches). As per the UK based online magazine T3, the official carrier for this cellphone will be Orange.
The estimated price of the phone? Honestly…you don’t want to know…a staggering $1000+. We are not exactly sure which segment of users will actually shell out that much of money especially in this economy, but we do know the phone itself is uber-powerful. The device has everything you need in a cellphone (and a watch, ofcourse!)…only grudge may be the missing keyboard. But hey it’s a watch first and then a phone! The CEO of Orange UK, Tom Alexander seems to have an interesting opinion about this device. He explains “the watch phone is the must-have gadget of 2009. It’s handcrafted, exclusively limited, and will turn heads on the high street”, and will supposedly bring “a 21st-century experience to our 21st century customers“.
