Samsung has launched a new SPH-W7100 phone with an in-built 100dB alarm that can save its owner in an emergency situation.
As under pressures of economic troubles cell phone owners are becoming victims of street robbers more frequently, the innovation will be useful in any country. It is a clamshell style cell phone and is mostly targeted at children and girls who are not always able to handle attackers.
After a ring, disguised as an accessory, is pulled out, the in-built siren starts yelling. The feature is conceived to stupefy the enemy and attract other people’s attention. Moreover, a GPS-chipset is added to trace the current whereabouts of the phone’s owner and send the info over to a pre-programmed number. SPH-W7100 phones are now available under Anycall brand only in South Korea and come in two colors – pink and blue. The issue of exporting it has not yet been brought up.
