It's going to have some stiff competition amongst the
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.
