LG Launches Watch Phone In India 109

roh2cool writes "If you are a watch freak and also happen to be a fan of ultra rare (and expensive) gadgets, this might just interest you. The LG GD910 watch phone looks like a normal watch – except for the fact that it can double up as your mobile phone when needed. 'It is quite thin at just 13.9mm and packs in 3G and Video Calling capabilities as well. The phone is quite stylish and the front fascia is covered by scratch-proof tempered glass. It comes with a Bluetooth headset so you don’t have to keep talking like David Hasselhoff talked to his super-car KITT in the “Knight Rider” series.'"

    There needs to be a slashdot poll to see how many people still wear watches. It has to be a dwindling number. There's a clock on my celphone, there was a clock on my pager, and in the 80s I was young enough to not have to give a crap about the time of day. So I've actually never worn a watch, except for a brief period when I enjoyed owning a few pocket watches, before they were accidentally put through the washing machine.

    Who would want to wear a watch even if it was a cel phone? It's not like you can have a smartphone-sized display on it. Since my phone is also my portable web and email browser these days, it would be kinda...minimalist. A watch in the age of portable electronic devices is simply redundant.

    But I wonder what technological breakthrough took so long that wrist-phones only show up now.

    I remember as a child, "books of the future" showed people wearing small computers as their watches. They were almost right, except it was the phone that turned into a computer, not the watch.

    Even when the technology can make powerful computers the size of the watch, I think many people would still rather have something with a larger screen/keyboard size, that they can still carry (i.e., a phone). Indeed, it's not uncommon for me to know people who no longer wear watches at all, because they have a phone.

Nothing makes a person more productive than the last minute.
