In Japan, cheaters prefer the Fujitsu 'F-Series' flip phone
News On Japan via nydailynews.com -- Jan 12
Keeping an affair secret can be a lot of work, but Japanese philanderers have a hand up thanks to a stealthy flip phone only sold in that country.
The Fujitsu "F-Series" phone has a band of loyal users who have refused to upgrade to smart phones for fear their cheating ways be exposed, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The Fujitsu is different than other phones because it hides calls, text messages and voicemail under a layer of privacy features only recognized, or accessed, by the phone's owner. A Japanese blogger proud of his cheating ways told the Journal he's sticking with the old flip phone so he won't get caught.
