LAST WEEK we showed you pictures of unboxing LG's Watchphone. Now we bring you video of our walk-through and hands-on demo of this Dick Tracy-inspired device in all its expensive glory.

Some background on the GD910. It's a 3G HSDPA quad-band watchphone capable of video calling from its VGA camera, where the image is viewable on the 1.4-inch capacitive touch screen. Other niceties thrown in for good measure are Bluetooth, voice recognition, text to speech for SMS and an MP3 player.

It's hitting the streets on 27 August, at Orange and at an introductory price of £500, although Orange hopes it will rise to the fully blown-out cost of £1000 in time. µ

UPDATE: At the end of the video we said the screen is 640x480, we actually meant the video camera.
