NTT DoCoMo out of Japan are releasing a new phone later this month that is a small step in getting those chatty people of the world to shut up. The phone has the ability to slow down rapid speech of the callers. With the simple tap of a button mid-call the speech on the other end is slowed to almost two times its normal rate. Now while this won t necessarily shut up the chatty Cathy s, they will definitely stop talking to you after they found out your imported a phone from Japan just to handle conversing with them. This phone also has a nifty pedometer and an 80dB alarm.
