    That could all soon change with the delivery of a “Gami,” a new form of electronic communication that allows people to record messages using an avatar that better conveys the tone of the message.

    Rather than wrestling with tiny keypads on a mobile computing device, Telegami allows anyone to convey an idea or a request with a much greater degree of personal touch.
