    Fertility Software.....?????

    A bedroom scene mid-2003: instead of reaching for the condoms, a couple fumbles for their mobile phone. By then, at least one handset model will have an in-built menstrual calendar and ovulation predictor.

    The fertility software is among new features phone makers are cramming into their handsets as they adopt the Swiss army knife approach to selling them.

    Early next year, Nokia will unveil the 5100 for outdoor adventurers and sports fanatics complete with flashlight, calorie-counter, thermometer (air temperature, not body temperature) and a stopwatch.

    Rival Samsung is preparing to launch its fake diamond-studded phone with in-built fertility software specifically for the female market.

    In Samsung's base of Korea, there is a well-established market in women's handsets. Phone networks even offer usage rewards for women, such as free visits to hairdressers. Here, Samsung is conducting workshops to see if there is similar demand.
