The LG Breathalyzer cellphone has introduced an anti-drunk dialing feature. It prevents that day after embarrassment of calling your ex, boss or even ex boss. The phone can be programmed to block those selected numbers if the breath analyzer records a blood-alcohol concentration over 0.08. The LG LP4100 is going to be released later this year, and has already sold 200,000 phones in Korea. (GUSH Magazine)
