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 above) 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.
