SIM free Blackberry rival turns heads
It sounds like gadget madness. A Blackberry-style handheld that has a full QWERTY keyboard, web browser and organiser functions – but no SIM card to get online.Made by Sanyo, the WiPoq instead uses Bluetooth to connect to your mob and thence on to the world using the phone’s data connection. It’s the first in what the company describes as a series of handheld companions for your phone, with TV and music versions also in the pipeline.At this juncture, you may be wondering why you’d get a WiPoq over a Blackberry. Bear with us. This little emailer is, in fact, perfect for anyone who owns and loves a feature-light fashion phone – such as Stuff stalwart, the Moto RAZR V3 – and only occasionally wants to do more serious and business-y jobs while they’re on the go. Think of it as a modular phone like, well, modular furniture. In addition to its email talents, the WiPoq has a stack of other messaging tricks up its skinny 17mm thick sleeve. There’s an instant messaging app – we don’t know yet which IM services it’ll work with – plus PIM functions displayed in an Outlook fashion. The companion’s web browsing talents are likely to beat your fashion phone’s, too, as it has an HTML browser to let you browse proper sites, be it eBay or your mates’ blogs.No pricing yet, but we do know it’ll launch here sometime between April and June. Stay tuned and graze in the meantime at Wipoq’s site. via stuffmagazine.co.uk
