iPhone users to walk and read at same time

iPhone users can now walk the streets safe in the knowledge that upcoming letter boxes, errant children or dogshit can be easily avoided, without interrupting the more important act of reading email.

Email 'N Walk is a genuine iPhone application, available for free from developers Phase2 Media, which displays the camera's view of the world behind the email being perused, allowing the multi-tasking user to navigate the mean streets and keep up to date with their electronic buddies at the same time.
