LG to Debut 3G Wrist Phone at CES

wristphone1Okay, this excites my inner nerd to no end — probably because it is one of those things seen in science fiction movies becoming reality. Korean cell phone manufacturer LG plans to debut a wrist-worn cellular phone at CES next month.

The phone will have 3G and HSDPA support, along with Bluetooth and MP3 playback capabilities. Since there is obviously no room for a keyboard on the 1.43 inch color screen that is the watchface, the device would also support text to speech as well.

Want even more geek? This puppy got a video camera on the watch face. Why you ask? For video conferencing of course. Sounds like something right out of Star Trek, don’t you think?

Availablity will come first early next year for Korea and Europe. Details on any US launch, as well as pricing, have not been announced as of yet.
