LG has confirmed that its GD910 phone watch will hit UK shelves next month.
Reminiscent of the ill-fated Fossil PDA watch, the GD910 features a 1.43in capacitive touchscreen with software keyboard, 7.2Mbits/sec 3G connection and Bluetooth for those who don't fancy having to speak into their watch on the bus.
If the Bluetooth headset option doesn't appeal, there's also a speaker phone, video calling, voice recognition and an integrated music player. It also tells the time.
The phone watch will arrive in the UK courtesy of Orange, but is likely to come with a hefty price tag. Orange hasn't confirmed pricing yet, but rumours pitch the watch at around £1,000 without a contract. We're waiting to hear back on what it will cost with a contract.
We first caught sight of the phone watch at the Consumer Electronics Show back in January, where LG's CTO Dr Woo Paik described it as "something you'd expect to see in in a Bond film".
