Ogo 2 Official
IXI added to the rush of 3GSM announcements this morning by releasing the Ogo2.0, an update to its text-centric phone and messenger hybrid. The name reflects the new Ogo's adaptation to Web 2.0 and participating online, IXI says. Beyond a sharper 320x240 display and new EDGE Internet support, the Ogo2.0 is the first messenger from the company to ship with the option of using OgoClips, tube-shaped attachements that enter into the hinge and add different functions depending on the model: a camera OgoClip already exists for photos and video chats, as do add-ons for wireless headsets, music streaming, and even bottle opening.
The quad-band GSM device will ship under the CT-25E name first to Switzerland through the country's local provider Swisscom, but should be available internationally later this year for prices that will vary from region to region. Click through for full-size images.
