LG GD910 unboxed at Tracy and Matt


Matt takes us on a tour of the LG GD910 watchphone. Prettier and more functional that I originally anticipated and seems like a fun device. However, I wouldn’t day it would work great for general day to day use. the screen is lovely though the the limited size is obviously going to be off putting. Video after the break.

LG GD910 Watchphone unboxing video

I must admit that when I first heard about the LG GD910 Watchphone a few months ago my initial reaction was that it would be nothing more than a gimmick and would have little practical use. However, having managed to get my hands on the Watchphone a few days ago I’ve changed my mind a little, I think it’s actually quite a cool and practical gadget that is going to appeal to a number of people.

LG Watchphone (LG-GD910) – Exclusive to Orange

The LG GD910 Watchphone is packed with features. There’s an excellent capacitive touchscreen, bluetooth, 2GB of internal memory for storing music and media, a camera for video conferencing, HSDPA support etc. It’s quite an extensive list and a specification that would be reasonable for any handset and even more so when you consider the size of this thing and that you can have all of that in something that can be worn on your wrist.

So I’ve been using the Watchphone for the last few days and I’ve been using it as my work phone along with the supplied Bluetooth headset. Call quality is perfectly acceptable but the downside is that signal reception isn’t great. Not a problem if you live in a metropolitan area with good coverage but not ideal if you live in a more rural area.

Battery life is impressive too. I’ve been using the GD910 for about 48 hours and so far I’ve not had to charge it. That’s despite making quite a few voice and video calls and texting as well as showing it off to my friends and listening to music. Thumbs up for battery life!

The main downside for me is that there is no email support at all. While I would not expect full Exchange email support it would be nice to have simple POP3 email. For me this would make it a more viable handset replacement. If however you are simply interested in voice and text messaging then it’s a better option.

So take a look at the video I have for you below. It’s a bit more than just an unboxing video this time. I’ve taken a tour around the Flash-based user interface and made some comments along the way.

Is Vodafone Access Gateway good value?


I’ve been very interested in this Femtocell that has recently hit the streets in the last few months. Essentially it is a small mobile phone tower that you plug into your DSL router and it increases your mobile phone signal in the home or wherever you use it.

I see this device is A) incredibly useful and B) a con.
