Zipit Wireless IM finally gets your teenager off the phone

Zipit Wireless Instant Messenger

It's going to have some stiff competition amongst the IMfree, Ogo, and, of course, the Sidekick II in the increasingly crowded arena of teenage handheld wireless-texting gadgets, but everything about the Zipit Wireless Instant Messenger—from the 802.11(b, we presume) with WEP, to the integrated firewall, to the full QWERTY keyboard and 4-8 hour battery life—should ensure it will be in good company. So yeah, you could say it's pretty good for a Benjamin, considering it's 4 x 3.5 x ¾-inches in size, and also supposedly downloads plugins for updating IM protocols and streaming music. We'll see though, we'll see, we're trying not to get our hopes up too much.
