LG to Launch LG GD910 Watch Phone on Orange

As watch mobile phones slowly make their way into the UK market with the recent release of the Epsom Watch Phone, LG have now announced that they will be teaming up with UK network operator Orange to launch a watch mobile phone of their own.

The LG GD910 Watch Phone in black and silver offers full LCD colour touch screen capabilities alongside 3G technology, there is also built-in Bluetooth and an inbedded MP3 player.

The most striking thing about this particular watch mobile phone is that it is far slimmer (just 13.9mm) than other models currently being imported from the Chinese markets, a major bug-bear foir UK consumers.

But how will the UK market react to waering their phone on their wrist? Being a nation of text-a-holics who just love tapping out those intimate messages on keypads and keyboards it will be interesting to see the take up of this new technology. (Although there is Text-to-Speech for reading your incoming messages aloud!)

So far the Epsom ES1000T Watch Phone has not wowed the masses, maybe down to its size or more importantly to the UK consumer demands.

Using a watch phone is very different to holding a conventional handset to your ear, firstly your have to choose whther to talk hands-free like a Star-Trek anorak or pair with a Blueototh headset (still looking like a Star-Trek anorak.

Then there’s the issue of dialling numbers, with such a small 1.43 inch screen its takes some concentration to select numbers from the display, voice dialling is always an option but as we all know too well can be unreliable!

Time will tell if watch phones are the future of mobile communication in the UK, we will hedge our bets and say – probably not.
