KTF rolls out 3G phone with lip-sync privacy

EV-W100 Lip-Sync Phone

Seeking to separate its phone lineup from the crowd, KTF has announced the EV-W100. The slider connects to HSDPA networks and has the increasingly prevalent front camera for video calls, but uses the technology to give callers an edge in privacy. A special lip-sync program replaces the video footage with an avatar on the recipient's end, matching the movement of the character's lips to the caller's voice. Ordinary male and female characters can be chosen alongside 'fun' stand-ins such as pigs or gorillas.

Other touches of the half-inch thick phone include a 2-megapixel camera, a 330,000 word dictionary, and stereo Bluetooth audio. The phone sells in its home country for under $425. A profile shot follows after the jump.
