Tiny phone; many features

The LG Watch Phone even has a built-in music player, thus making it possibly one of the first MP3 player watches around. It also has stereo Bluetooth, which makes listening to the music easier.

Runs like clockwork

The LG Watch Phone will be available later this year for European markets only. It may come to the U.S. later, but there's no confirmation on that front. However, it does have quad-band GSM, and the 3G/HSDPA frequency is compatible with AT&T's, so it's possible it'll work Stateside as well.
