CES: LG’s watch a secret agent could love
Mention a watch phone and many people will say the same thing: “sounds like something out of a James Bond movie.”
So when Woo Paik, president and chief technology officer of LG Electronics, introduced LG’s new wrist-wrapping, touch-screen communications device at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday, he couldn’t let the moment pass without the obligatory 007 reference.
And it’s true, there was certainly something Bond-ish when Paik lifted his wrist to his mouth and placed a call to someone across the room.
Still, there is considerable question – secret agents notwithstanding – over whether anybody wants to actually buy a watch phone. But that doesn’t take away from the device’s curious appeal. The GD910, which Paik called the world’s smallest 3G-enabled watch phone, has a screen smaller than 1.5 inches, a camera for video calls, Bluetooth, and a music player
It will be available later this year.
