Phones Are Just About to GET SMARTER
We all saw the gadgettery in Bond and Get Smart, we wrote in September about the smart clothing with chips,well LG is now going to try to sell a 3G moble watch next year. The LG-GD910 builds on a prototype first shown at last year’s CES fair is planned to launch first in Europe.
The LG-GD910 has a 1.4-inch touchscreen display that is used as the keypad when making a call, it also has additional buttons down the side of the phone's body, supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access) data system making downloads very fast and even has a camera above the top right corner of the screen enabling video calls! They didn’t stop there and have included Bluetooth, an MP3 player, a speakerphone and a text-to-speech function and just to top the lot and make Bond’s ‘Q’really proud the handset is also waterproof.
The sheer novelty makes this a must have not just for geeks and kids but we even want one. Can you imagine the security checks at airports now will have to ask you to remove your computer from your wrist!
We can’t wait to see what is unveiled at this year’s CES in January.
