Orange launches LG’s £500 Touchscreen Watchphone

Want a phone in your watch?

Of course you do.

Here’s what the LG Touchscreen Watchphone looks like:

Gorgeous.

The handset goes on sale next week (27th August) in the Orange store by Bond Street Station in central London. It’ll set you back 500 quid. You can buy only one each. Expect them to fly off the shelves.

A small price to pay for:

a) The bragging rights
b) The exclusivity
c) The wickedly smart James Bond technology

To make a voice or video call – in true 22nd Century fashion – all you have to do is ask it nicely. The combination of voice activated command, VGA camera and Bluetooth technology mean you’ll never have to raise a finger to make a call again… just turn your wrist and talk away. The handmade timepiece is designed with the image conscious in mind too and features eight different watch faces – one to suit your every mood or crime-fighting outfit.

    I'd have one though! I'm not sure I need it to be 3G though!

    The watch in the picture doesn't tell the time.

    No, but it tells people that you have five hundred quid to blow!

    Nonsense. Utter nonsense. Won't stop idiots wearing too much gold chain / hair product / aftershave from buying it though.

    As a dumb thing to blow half a grand on, I can think of worse though. Like a $1000 iPhone app.

    Let us know when they launch a 'Kinetic' version – then I'd be interested!
