LG GD910

As most have noticed, neither LG, nor Samsung which usually have a few hundred (less but sometime it feels that way) new devices to announce, were pretty quiet this time. The only new and exciting device came from LG. The prototype was showcased during last year’s CES, but now LG has a fully working unit. Coming is several different color schemes, the device is a large watch with quad-band GSM support and note HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbit/s (EU frequency only). Unfortunately, LG had only one unit on a rep’s wrist, and the rep was not floor and they told us even when he comes back, we would not be allowed to play with it. So we got the info and hopefully next month during the Mobile World Congress will have some hands-on time with it.

The watch is supposed to be fully featured phone, with messaging, web etc functionality! It looks kind of oversized in order to accommodate as large touch screen as possible. We were told the watch is designed to be used without headset (even though Bluetooth is of course support) and has special directional microphone to capture the user’s voice and filter out any ambient sounds.

Believe it or not, the device will also be water-proof. That is correct – not water resistant, but water proof up to 30 feet (10 meters)! Expect more on it from the Mobile World Congress.

I'll take one. And I guess I'll need one of those Touchstone wireless chargers as well.

this is a good article! im sorry, but it definitely needs to be cleaned up--serious grammatical errors and poor syntax plague the entire page.
