What's better than an iPhone? Well, nothing -- But, there may be a phone that I may place in that coveted second place spot on my list of the best cell phones out there. Here's an Associated Press article which explains.
Chiba, Japan - It can take your pulse, check your body fat, time your jogs and tell you if you have bad breath. It even assesses stress levels and inspires you with a pep talk. The prototype Wellness mobile phone from Japan's NTT DoCoMo Inc. targets users with busy lives who want a hassle-free way of keeping track of their health, according to company spokesman Noriaki Tobita.According to the company, this also has the capability to be a body fat calculator, tell you if you have bad breath, and claims to give advice about stress. Wow! I didn't know a cell phone could do all that? The most important question I have is this: Will it blend?
The phone, unveiled this week at the CEATEC electronics show outside Tokyo, has an inbuilt motion sensor that detects body movement and calculates how many calories you burn. The sensor can tell whether you're walking, running, climbing stairs, or resting, and counts the calories accordingly to tally daily totals, Tobita said.
