Photo from I4U Story in 2000 The News are full with a story about the NTT DoComo Mobile Phone Prototype that uses a Finger as earpiece.

I checked our archives and I knew it, we reported about the NTT DoCoMo Finger Phone in 2000! Three years ago. Back then I4U was a little blog.

The DoCoMo Gadget, called Finger Whisper, uses a wristband to convert the sounds of conversation to vibrations that can be heard when the finger is placed in the ear.
THe Finger Whisper phone is answered by touching forefinger to thumb and then by putting the forefinger in the ear to hear who is ringing. The call is ended by again touching forefinger to thumb. The phone has no keypad but users can make a call by saying out loud the number they want to reach. Some report that the whisper phone will be available in 2005.
