PocketSurfer2 Mobile Web Device
PocketSurfer2 is a hand held wireless web terminal, which is expected to be released for Christmas (Amazon.uk are taking orders). It uses the mobile phone network to provide access for web browsing and email access. The device only provides text and still image access, no phone capability and no video, resulting in a low cost device which does not require a 3G broadband phone network. This makes it less capable than devices such as the ASUS Eee PC, but cheaper and more self contained.
The device got a reasonable review in APC, but much will depend on how much the wireless service is going to cost.
