Mind you, Orange doesn't think so. According to Mobile Today, where the rumour of the watch's £1,000 UK price tag first surfaced, l'Orange has pegged a grand as a suitable price for the handset -- although 'handset' is a somewhat erroneous description, considering it lives on the wrist.
We saw the hilariously chunky LG 'wristset' first back at CES, but we fingered it more recently at Mobile World Congress. It'll be hitting the UK later this year, complete with HSDPA video calling, stereo Bluetooth, a text-to-speech function for reading text messages out loud, and a 36mm (1.4-inch) touchscreen.
We contacted Orange for comment, but a spokesperson has yet to respond.
So for now, dearest of readers, the question is: would you pay £1,000 for the phone-that-is-also-a-watch?
