Stupid gadget award

Posted in Geekery on December 13th, 2004

Ogo is a personal messaging device that is capable of e-mail reading, three IM clients (MSN, AIM, Yahoo!) and standard text messaging. It has a nice color screen and a full thunb-sized keyboard for typing, and even a speaker for some reason. The price isn’t too high, and service plans are fairly reasonable.

Reasonable, that is, until you realize that this rather large handheld device is not actually a phone – its just a beefed-up pager.

Now why in the world would I want a device like this? My phone already does text messaging, and if I really feel like it, I can upgrade my phone to something like a Blackberry that handles e-mail and IM clients, or a Treo that is a full-on PDA with all those features as well. A separate device though? My belt is already a bit crowded, thank you.
