This reminds us a little bit of voice-to-SMS -- it's a feature that's been perverted in such a way that the original intent has been somehow lost in translation. Don't get us wrong; with HSDPA, 2 megapixel cam, and A2DP, the EV-W100 from KTF is nice and all (it is, after all, a Korean handset), but the draw here seems to be special software that'll replace the outgoing video on video calls with an animated avatar as a "security" measure. Now if we're not mistaken, it takes two to tango when it comes to video calling, so why not just not hold a video call if you're concerned about the peeps on the other end seeing what's going on? No bother; we guess it's pretty cool that a talking pig is one of the avatar choices.
