LG Watch Phone at Orange

The UK division of Orange announced on Thursday it will be the exclusive provider of the LG Watchphone, the GD910, with the device first sold in the carrier's Bond Street Station store in Central London on August 27th. The device will sell for the equivalent of $824, or much less than the previously reported $1,291, but only for a limited and undisclosed amount of time. The handmade watch phone is expected to be relatively popular and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, with only one per person. Orange also said another limited batch of the devices will be made available from the provider's online store in mid-September.

The GD910 has a scratch-resistant touchscreen that lets users write text messages, while calls can be made via voice commands. There is also a built-in speaker and the ability to play back MP3/AAC audio files. Bluetooth lets users hook up an included wireless headset, while a VGA camera lets users capture photos and videos. The device supports quad-band GSM and EDGE networks but, for now, only supports 7.2Mbps 3G on Asian and European HSPA bands.
