Japan: 3G phones to fight crime

Japanese police are encouraging third-generation (3G) mobile phone users to assist them in their fight against crime. Thursday's edition of the Mainichi Daily News reports that officers in Osaka have set up an emergency videophone hotline. They hope that 3G phones users who witness a crime will be able to email an image, or even a video clip of the action, to the Osaka police. Japanese mobile giant NTT DoCoMo launched its 3G service last year. It provides a constant high-speed connection to the Internet, and subscribers will use a smart phone that includes a built-in digital camera.

Cell phone thieves could get five years

Britain's most senior judge signals that stealing a mobile phone must become a custodial offence. Lord Chief Justice Lord Woolf has addressed the rapid rise in mobile phone crime by announcing that those convicted of stealing a handset should face up to five years in prison--or even longer if violence is used. Britain's most senior judge also said that mobile phone manufacturers have an obligation to try and make phones less attractive to thieves. The Attorney General had referred the cases to the Appeals Court because he felt the original sentences were unduly lenient--a view shared by Lord Woolf. --Graeme Wearden, ZDNet News U.K.
