Pantech, KTF wind handsets

Korea's Pantech on Thursday announced the upcoming introduction of what it claims to be a pair of nearly identical cellphones with a Wind Recognition feature, the SKT IM-S410 and KTF IM-S410K. Equipped with a Nintendo DS-like sensor that can gauge the amount of forced air or wind moving through it, the feature is tied into various functions of the handset that, among other things, allows users to blow an emoticon kiss during a video call. The feature can also be used in the phones' photo galleries, gaming and video applications.

Apart from the new feature, the Sky-branded phones are just 0.43 inches (11mm) thick and adds functions such as a GPS sensor, DMB digital radio and TV tuner, an electronic wallet and the electronic dictionary ubiquitous in Korean phones.

Available in white, red or black, there is no detailed pricing nor release information for the pair of handsets. [via Akihabara]

    I can't think of a feature I'd want less in a phone.
