The LG LP4100 Cell Phone Breathalyzer to Hit U.S. Market Soon
The LG LP4100 has been very successful in Korea with its equipped breathalyzer. That's right a breathalyzer. What will they think of next? The phones have sold over 200,000 units in Korea in 2005 and it continues to be very successful.
LG recently showcased the LP4100 handset at CES in Vegas. Like camera and video features that have been very successful, the LP 4100 with its breathalyzer is anticipated to be a hit in the U.S. market, scheduled for release later this year.
The LP4100 breathalyzer when blown into gives a warning and displays a nifty little animation of a car swerving on a road and crashing into traffic cones.
This should be easy for the intoxicated to understand. The phone can also be programmed to block selected numbers in the address book (i.e., boss, mom, dad) if the breathalyzer records a BAC over 0.08. The LP 4100 is a very equipped handset, containing a handful of desirable features like a camera and OLED external screen. It also weighs in at a paltry 3.2 ounces.
