German equipment supplier Siemens Mobile has developed a new mobile handset that it claims will detect bad breath. According to a spokeswoman at the company the new phone will use a tiny chip which will sense anything from bad breath, alcohol and atmospheric gas levels. It will then alert users. Meanwhile the company has also introduced another new handset, the S66 camera phone which is the first Siemens handset with an integrated 1.3 megapixel still and video camera. The camera includes a five-step digital zoom and the ability to capture 15 frames per second.
