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.”
