LG GD910 Watch Phone - CRAZEEEEEE



In case you were wondering when all of those futuristic items we were promised back in the '80s would ever actually come about, one that seems like such a simple idea is finally here. Kept in a glass case at last year's CES, the touch-screen GD910 watch phone by LG is no longer just a prototype, it's a full blown, market-ready Touch Watch Phone with 3G Video Telephony service and GSM Quadband Network capabilities and has been getting lots of attention for it. (Although there's no price announced as of yet.) Set to compete with the smartest of smart phones, the watch phone boasts a list of features that include an MP3 player, text messaging, text to speech capability, a flash interface, large phonebook and scheduler, all in its tiny 1.43-inch screen size.
