LG Watch Phone to Cost Over $1,000

Just a few weeks back we talked about Samsung's foray into the wristwatch cell phone market with its super slim S9110. Measuring just 0.48 inches thick and touting Bluetooth technology, voice recognition, a 1.7-inch touchscreen display, a stainless steel body and leather strap, the S9110 costs $640. Pretty pricey for a cell phone right?

Well cheer up, it could be worse. The S9110's clunkier counterpart, LG's GD910 is said to cost over a thousand bucks. Despite the fact that it was announced first (we've been hearing about LG's watch for two years now), pricing for the device has only just been announced and it amounts to a cool €899 or $1,290.

Available from French carrier Orange this August, there's still no official word on a U.S. release, so it looks like interested parties will have to wait just a little longer to get their hands on this one. Then again, most people don't have that kind of money to drop on a cell phone so perhaps there aren't many people waiting.
