Samsung Enter the Smartwatch Market
Mr Bond is that a phone, a computer or just a watch on your wrist?
We wanted the LG GD910watch phone but the price was too high even for a vanity piece of jewellery and now Samsung in releasing one the S9110 and plans to bring it to Europe. The 450 euro smartwatch will be launched in France with a 4.5cm touchscreen, metal body and leather strap.
At just 11.98mm thick it's described as the world's thinnest smartwatch with Outlook e-mail, voice calls, MP3 player, and Bluetooth to support that earpiece it sounds impressive and is under half the price of the LG GD910 offered by Orange.
