LG readying next version of GD910 Watch Phone

The GD910 watch phone was by far the coolest watch phone I had seen thus far. It was extremely classy and techie looking — a far departure from your typical watch phone which often comes away looking like a Miami Vice edition complete with 80′s build quality and all. The GD910 while a niche product and low sales was proof that a cool watch phone could be built.

Apparently there was enough demand that one generation just wasn’t enough as LG has the GD910′s successor scurrying the lab looking for a release date. John Barton, LG’s UK sales and marketing director was quoted saying that “several” more styles of GD910 are coming. Now I would love to think that a new design/version is coming, but it could also mean that something as simple as an extended color palette is all that we’ll see. Obviously I hope for the former as the latter is a cash grab.

If you didn’t pick up the GD910 the first time around, would new colors or even a completely new model finally break your resilience to open up that death grip on your wallet?

James Bondesque LG G910 watchphone coming to Orange

The luckiest carrier in the world (in my opinion) has just become Orange UK.  Orange has announced that they will be the first carrier in the world to carry LG’s amazingly cool G910 watchphone.  Available later this year with a current price of “pick a number”, many are sure to start shaking uncontrollably.  Orange will offer it over their entire network footprint.  For those of you who live in a cave and don’t know what the G910 is or simply need a refresher: 3G HSDPA, video calling, multimedia playback, and the holy grail of touch input.  A pretty solid feature set.  Hopefully this phone decimates all past attempts and wrist watch communication as the device and UI look simply gorgeous.  Press Release aficionados can check out the official PR here while the more visual type come inside for a whole slew of pictures of the G910 in action.

James Bond Watch Phone coming later this year courtesy of LG

I am a big James Bond fan.  I don’t know if its the overall movies that I like more or just all of the cool gadgets that he has received in the past.  LG is bringing James Bonds’ fictional watch phone to the public market with the GD910.  Production on said device will begin later in ’09.  Just because the phone is packed into a watch doesn’t mean they skimped on features.  Below is a quick list.

  • HSDPA at 7.2 Mbps
  • Bluetooth
  • Speakerphone
  • Video Calling
  • Voice Recognition
  • Integrated music player
