LG Goes 3G on Cellular Phone Watch
by Mark R
I recently received a CES Preshow Planner in the mail, and pasted on the cover is an ad for LG. Apparently, they are planning to unveil big things at the show this year, and one of them is the LG-GD910 Watch.
The LG-GD910 is a watch that is a 3G-enabled mobile phone. It has a 1.4-inch touchscreen, and is about 0.6 inches thick. I figured that a cellular phone on your wrist might be a little large, because I’ve tried out MP4 watches that tend to feel like a brick on the wrist.
The cellular watch phone also features a video conferencing, so you can talk into your watch to the person on the screen, like Dick Tracy or Electro-woman. I realize that many of you might not have understood that last reference, but Electro-woman and Dyna-Girl was a kid’s show with two superhero ladies whose powers were in their oversized wrist bracelets.
Other features include text-to-speech capability, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios, as well as a music player. It can also download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps on HSDPA.
This product is enough to make me drop by the LG booth at CES, just to see how well it works. I’ve heard that it is expected to initially be available in Europe. No word on a price just yet.
