WatchphoneWe’ve always thought watchphones were just a bit too dysfunctional or big to be practical, but LG seems to have actually made it work.  Runs on a 3G network, has 2 GB of internal memory, voice command and best of all Bluetooth 2.0 so you’re not Dick Tracy-ing it all day into your wrist.  But wait there’s more – it has a video camera for video calls.  Full video of features is here.  Water-resistant and we even like the normal look of the watch function.  The watch went on sale today in Great Britain, but you can already pre-order unlocked versions to slip your SIM card into.  $850 – $1400 BUY
