An integrated mouse pointer and a full format, backlit QWERTY keyboard must make it one of the most usable hand-held web device around. The rich user experience of the PocketSurfer2 offers a real alternative to consumers tired of the limited functionality, unfamiliar content and small screens on mobile phones or Smartphone’s.

It doesn’t hang about either, with page-load times of under seven seconds over GPRS thanks to over GPRS thanks to Datawind’s compression technology, you’ll be flying around the web just as you would at your desk. Comparative devices regularly take up to two minutes to download similar web pages.

  • Pocketsurfer: A Mobile Internet Device

    Mobility to go online is in your pocket and that’s true with the pocketsurfer, what amazes me is the speed to load web pages, yet giving the real web which I haven’t experienced with n number of PDAs that I have tried so far. Its uniqueness is portability, speed and it’s very affordable, you don’t have to think of any contracts with service providers with the pocketsurfer, internet is as good as free with it.
