The folks at TABLETmedia are trying to get you to toss your antiquated walkie-talkie in favor of something a little more au courant
, recently releasing its "groundbreaking" iTalkie P2P software for Windows Mobile devices. Aimed squarely at vertical market customers (though nothing's stopping the rest of us), it'll allow for both one-to-one calling and paging over a PA system -- the latter requiring a PC gateway with its sound card plugged into the system itself. It also one-ups the old-school walkie-talkie in one area, with presence indication so you can see when your fellow co-workers are available to chat with/distract from work. If you want to give it a test run, you can snag an extremely time-limited trial version (five minutes of use), or just grab the full version for $29.95. That's for a single device license -- a two-license pack's also available for $39.95, with a 5-license pack including the Windows PC gateway software running you $299.95.
