Ubiquitous Healthcare via Cellphone

Here's something new:  You can now monitor your health using your cellphones!  An American company is now offering a "Diabetes Phone" (actuall a modded LG-KPS400 bundled with a service from HealthPia) that can help people with diabetes monitor their condition.  It has blood sugar management, calorie calculator, real-time disease management via SMS, etc.

Apart from the Diabetes Phone, HealthPia offers other cellphone variants such as the Diet Phone, Stress Phone, EKG Phone and the Beauty Phone.

Too bad this service is not available locally.
