LG GD910 watch phone launches with Orange

LG Watch Phone at Orange

As promised, Orange France today began selling the GD910 watch phone. Still the first phone of its type to use 3G calling and data, the device still functions as a world clock and stopwatch but, through a touchscreen, can perform both the usual calling and messaging as well as handle music playback and take VGA-sized photos. Bluetooth is instrumental to the GD910; it comes with a designer headset for calls and supports optional Bluetooth stereo headphones.

The upscale, waterproof design carries a high premium and will sell for €899 ($1,291) on a 1- or 2-year contract. LG hasn't said how soon if ever it will export the GD910 to the US, though without price cuts would be more likely to show only as an unlocked device; it supports quad-band GSM and EDGE and should work for at least calls and 2G data in North America.
