LG Watch Phone out next week


Orange has announced that the LG Touchscreen Watch Phone will go on sale in the UK in its Bond Street Station shop next Thursday (August 27).

Available only for a limited time, customers will be able to purchase the product for £500. A limited number of devices will also be made available from mid-September via the Orange online shop.

The Watch Phone will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis to those who visit the store in person, with customers only able to purchase one watchphone each.

The 3G+ device comes with a scratch resistant touchscreen interface, built-in speaker and MP3 player. To make a call, consumers can use the voice activation feature and flick their wrist to activate the call. Other features include a VGA camera, Bluetooth and eight different watch faces.

Orange UK director of devices Francois Mahieu said: “The LG Touchscreen Watch Phone is one of several ‘future phones’ we’re bringing to UK consumers this year. Being handmade, the device really is highly original and exclusively limited – so you’ll be the envy of all your friends if you’re fortunate enough to get your hands on one.”
