AT&T Wireless is preparing to launch ogo, a unique clamshell instant-messaging device, to compete with T-Mobile's Sidekick, according to documents posted recently on the FCC web site. ogo will be the first device for North America to feature PMG (Personal Mobile Gateway), a Bluetooth-based technology from IXI Mobile. PMG will allow the ogo to connect wirelessly to other PMG devices nearby, such as cameras, watches, digital pens, and gaming devices. PMG could also link the ogo to a phone for voice service, which is not included in the device. ogo supports the e-mail and instant messaging functions of the AOL, MSN, and Yahoo! portals. The ogo also supports SMS and standard e-mail. The dual-band GSM device will be manufactured by Chi Mei Communication Systems. Documents submitted to the FCC show that service will start at $14.99 per month for customers with an AT&T Wireless voice plan, or $17.99 for other users, plus a $19.99 activation fee. The service includes access to one portal, with additional portals costing an extra $3 per month.
