Zipit Wireless Messenger 2

Zipit today rolled out the Wireless Messenger 2, its foldable handheld built with instant messaging in mind. Nicknamed the Z2, the device connects through Wi-Fi and allows chats through AIM, Windows Live, or Yahoo with a full QWERTY keyboard and navigation pad but without the expense of a cellphone or a notebook. Beyond reducing the price, this also makes the Z2 an ideal substitute to keep teenagers and younger kids in a malware-free environment, Zipit says. Particularly concerned parents can remotely control access through a web portal.

The Z2 doubles as a media player and displays photos or plays MP3s stored on miniSD cards. It also includes a dictionary for common IM expressions, the company adds. Zipit sells its refreshed Wireless Messenger today for $150 and notes that there is no special subscription needed either for Internet access or any of the Z2's special features.
