Bow-Lingual - A Cell Phone for Fido

We jumped at the chance to take the new Bow-Lingual Connect software for wireless 'walkies' recently. Takara, makers of the popular canine speech translator, had a dog to lend us, but it fell ill. Then a friendly ballerina's French Bulldog pulled out at the last minute, so we conducted this highly unscientific test on Vodafone's V601SH handset by Sharp using our own pre-recorded (with Movie Sha-Mail) video of a since-deceased beagle. We may have been barking up the wrong tree with this approach, or howling mad to try to make sense of Bow-Lingual, but even if Takara's mobile version is a bit beastly, it shouldn't distract from the unit itself, which is a jolly good cell phone.
