'Kosher Phone' Rings True to Some
Boasting a rabbinical seal of approval but lacking features included in most other gadgets of its kind, the "kosher phone" is calling out to some ultra-Orthodox Jews. "There's interest out there in a conservative phone," said Abrasha Burstyn, CEO of the Motorola subsidiary in Israel that developed the device. And the kosher phone is all about conservative: It doesn't do text messages, pictures, video or internet access. It's just for making calls -- and it blocks more than 10,000 numbers for phone sex, dating hot lines and other morally murky services. More than 20,000 kosher phones are in use, and two other Israeli companies are developing similar devices, the Associated Press reports. But the ultimate endorsement might be the fact that some Arab companies have taken an interest in marketing a similar phone -- to conservative Muslims.
