Korean electronics giant LG is going to try to sell a 3G mobile phone watch next year.
IDG: The LG-GD910 phone will go on sale first in Europe and builds on a prototype shown at CES 2008.
In the centre of the watch face is a 1.4-inch touchscreen display that is used for most interaction. It is used as the keypad when making a call, for example. There are also buttons down the side of the phone’s body.
The WCDMA (wideband code division multiple access) phone supports the latest 7.2Mbps HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access) data system, so downloads should be fast. It can also make video calls via a small camera above the top right corner of the screen.
Other features include Bluetooth, an MP3 player, a speakerphone and a text-to-speech function. The handset is also waterproof.
