Pocket Surfer 2 coming to the UK for Free Mobile Web

3 July 2007 by axxxr
DataWind's Pocket Surfer 2 device is coming to the UK in July, claiming to offer the internet anywhere for free.

The first generation device is currently for sale in the US and Canada, offering full web access via a 640 pixel wide screen with full QWERTY keyboard. It works via your mobile handset, using a Bluetooth (which means wireless) link-up for connectivity. And it's friendly to your data contract too server-side compression cutting back on the bandwidth.

What the second generation model (pictured below) offers, apart from a change of look, isn't clear. Hopefully we'll have concrete details of it, as well as the pricing model, after the launch. source:techdigest

sadly only claims at this stage. even if there are no browsing costs,your pockets will be emptied somehow, there's always a way! be that downloads, specific sites charging you, or simply the cost of the device!!
