WiPOQ set to hit the UK


Remember the WiPOQ? We previewed this mobile messaging gadget around a year a go. Well, after quite a wait, it looks like a release for the UK is now imminment.

It’s a compact (at just 17mm thick) device with a full qwerty keyboard, a dedicated line of numeric keys and a 65k colour screen that’s optimised to send email (with attachments) or for messaging. It can also be used for storing contacts, updating your calendar, surfing the web or even playing games. Ideal if you don’t have a BlackBerry or don’t want to carry round a larger device.  It’s a SIM-free device, meaning you don’t have to sign up to a contract to use it – instead WiPOQ ‘borrows’ connectivity from your mobile phone via bluetooth.

We’ve been informed that it’s imminent, but as yet we have no exact date, nor do we have a definite price. We’ll keep you posted on both.
