Cellphone makers seek new ways to get cheating husbands, wives off hook
Makers of new-style video mobile phones said yesterday that they are looking at ways of getting errant husbands and wives off the hook if a spouse calls at an awkward time.

If the technology succeeds, a special setting will allow owners of third-generation (3G) phones to select the background of their choice before answering a call.

The breakthrough might allow a husband who is in a bar to answer the call with a photograph of the office in the background.

Alternatively, a wife who wants her husband to believe she is at home would be able to project an image of the living room as a backdrop at the flick of a switch.
