NYT63 - (NYT63) HONG KONG -- Feb. 23, 2005 -- VIRTUAL-GIRLFRIENDS-2 -- 'Vivienne' the first of Artificial Life Inc. of Hong Kong's range of Virtual girlfriends for 3G mobile phones. Vivienne, the product of computerized voice synthesis, streaming video and text messages, is meant not only to bring business to Artificial Life (she will be available for a monthly fee of $6, not including the airtime costs paid to cellphone operators or the price of virtual chocolates and flowers). But she is also meant to be a lure for the new, higher-tech, third generation, or 3G, cellphones. (Photo illustration by Tony Cenicola/The New York Times)
