Ogo 2 Coming
IXI Mobile said today that it would introduce a new version of its Ogo handheld at the 3GSM expo beginning next week in Barcelona. Although the company has not revealed specific details of the upgrade, the refresh is said to include both new devices and services, suggesting more than just hardware. The platform will get its formal introduction on February 14th.
The Ogo is a direct competitor to the Sidekick and other hybrid phone communicators that focuses heavily on instant messaging through AOL, MSN, or Yahoo, as well as e-mail and RSS news feeds. Its current incarnation also reads PDF files and most Office formats. AT&T offers an Ogo device for $80.
