Cool Japanese Cell Phone Services

While doing research on this new phone, we came across a lot of cool an interesting services that the Japanese enjoy that we don't have.

PushTalk - PushTalk enables up to 5* people* (including the caller ) to participate in a single call. Calls between PushTalk compatible handsets can be made straight away as no application is necessary.

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 phone has an inbuilt motion sensor that detects body movement and calculates how many calories you burn.
