Watch Phones are coming!

July 17th, 2009 No comments

In the UK there once was a mobile carrier called Orange. They partnered up with an innovative electronics company called LG (maybe you’ve heard of them). Together they are about to release some crazy tech in the UK next month.
Check it:

LG GD910

LG GD910

It’s the LG GD910 Watch Phone. The gadget blogs are all aflutter with this news. Some dissing it by calling it “cool but impractical”, but most embracing it despite the rumored cost of near £1000 (about $1600 US). This is definitely an awesome gadget and the inner nerd in all of us techies seriously desires it, mostly because it’s cool and futuristic giving us an actual excuse to act like super spies or intergalactic heroes (as if we needed another reason).
But just the fact that they are getting there with this technology is exciting to me.

Here is a quick overview of the features done by at the CES2009:

Another less well known company has come out with their own watch phone. It is also pretty cool with a nice touch screen AND a keypad on the side (though some people might think this detracts from it’s aesthetics a bit).
The company is called Phenom, and the model pictured is called “Special Ops”.

I like the more industrial design of this watch phone. And I like the price a whole lot more (between $200 and $300).
Both watch phones include bluetooth, touch screen, video conferencing and MP3 capabilities, and a micro SD slot. The LG also offers “high speed browsing” while that is not on the included list of features for the Phenom.
I can’t wait to start seeing people with these things on, but so far it looks like this Phenomenon will be limited to the UK, for the time being.

DTXTR translates tweenspeak

May 28th, 2009 No comments

Via TechCrunch comes word of a new tool from LG called DTXTR (de-text-er).  It’s being (humorously) described as a translater of the texting language used by tweens and teens as shorthand for long phrases that would be painful to thumb-type.

dtxtrTo translate, you enter the tweentongue phrase on the left or the English phrase on the right.  You then click the DTXTR button to get the proper translation.

dtxtr-2I will say that the dictionary is pretty limited and relies on user-inputted updates to its terminology database.  However, it did give me a new tweenword to describe my newly teen daughter.  😀

The 3G Touch Watch

The 3G Touch Watch

It seems that science fiction and action movies have paved the way for the phone watch by LG. This watch is a touch screen that premiered at CES 2009. The phone includes a built-in camera for video telephony. It also features 7.2Mbps HSDPA network support and Bluetooth connectivity. The screen on the phone watch is a more 1.43 inch touchscreen. It is also water resistant for you water fanatics. Music folks, you won’t be disappointed. It can play MP3 through the built in small speakers.

LG GD900 Clear

LG announced that it will be coming out with the first see-through cellphone. The cellphone LG GD900 is transparent

Let’s make one thing ahem..Clear. It actually has an invisible keypad. The screen itself is not transparent.

In additioin, it has 2 cameras, one for the front and one for the back. We’re assuming that the front camera is used for video chatting.

More details on the LG GD900 coming later this spring along with the price and availability.

Comment if you want one.
