Excerpt: As mobile technology progresses, we’re making handsets smaller and smaller and as testament to that LG’s GD910 watch phones stands true. If you ever wanted to play spy or Dick Tracy, the super cop, this is one gadget you have got to have, even if it does cost you an arm and a leg. Take a closer look. Form Factor The GD910 is a lightweight watch phone at just 84g. Its 1.4-inch touchscreen (capacitive) is very responsive and just large enough to be comfortable to use.
Summary: While mobile manufacturers are churning out handsets with bigger screens and more features, LG has decided to try something different. The result is a phone that has a 1.43-inch screen and with basic features that you'll expect in a phone from 2000, not 2009. Now before you start wondering if LG's designers have gone off the rails, get this - it actually fits on your wrist.
LG LGGD910 3G Watch Phone (Unlocked)--Gadget Lovers Take Notice

Excerpt: I purchased the LG LGGD910 3G watch phone from an international seller. The watch phone is compatible with 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies and HSDPA 2100. I travel about six months of the year in Europe, so I will be able to use the watch phone on Europe's HSDPA 2100 network. It will work in the States on the 850/1900 frequencies.
Summary: We've all seen the sci-fi films where a space commander uses his watch to communicate with his fellow contemporaries and until now it's been just that, sci-fi. Well not any more, thanks to LG, who have transcended space and time to bring us the LG GD910 – a mobile phone watch. Can a watch double as a mobile phone in everyday life?
Summary: Boasting 3G connectivity, a full touch-screen interface and 2GB of built-in memory, the LG GD910 watch phone is surprisingly intuitive to use for such a small device, but its price tag is simply ridiculous.
Dick Tracy and James Bond step aside - the LG watch phone has arrived

Summary: The LG GD910 watch phone works well considering the design limitations, but its price tag is simply ridiculous. If you've always wanted to pretend you're Dick Tracy or James Bond you'll be impressed. For everyone else, a watch phone isn't practical enough to seriously consider.
Pros: Responsive capacitive display, Bluetooth headset included, 2GB memory, decent call quality, video calls, intuitive interface, splash resistant
Cons: Large and bulky for a watch, style won't appeal to everyone, no memory card slot, excessive price, dialling and messaging hard to grasp
Conclusion: This isn’t a replacement for an ordinary mobile phone – at least we hope LG doesn’t think that. With a limited production run, and an expensive one at that (£500), it’s hardly going to take the world by storm. As a watch, you need to press a button to turn on the backlight if it’s dark, so there’s a compromise there straight away, but it works well as a phone and has many other features too.
Summary: Ever since the cartoon American detective Dick Tracy sported his celebrated “2-Way wrist TV” in 1946, we gadgetistas have been waiting for such a device to be invented in real life. I’ve never been wholly confident that I’ll find myself one day writing on this page about rocket backpacks, thought transmitters and the like, but a wristwatch video communicator should be do-able, it’s always seemed.
