LG has announced the Australian launch of a 3G-enabled touchscreen mobile phone that is wearable as a watch.
The GD910 was first previewed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2009 and features 7.2Mbps 3G HSDPA compatibility and a 1.43-inch screen made of tempered glass. It uses voice recognition features to speed up phonebook searches and make calls while a text to speech system reads out text messages and other on-screen information.
The entire device is 13.9mm thick and designed to be worn on the wrist like a traditional wristwatch. It is available for RRP $2299.
A spokesperson for LG told ARN the vendor was in discussions with carriers and retailers on how the product will be distributed when sales begin in December.
