Ogo - the AT&T Wireless email / sms / IM soluition

AT&T Wireless is getting ready to launch a new device dubbed the Ogo. It is basically a E-mail / SMS / Chat device which lack phone capabilities. Ogo will support AOL, MSN and Yahoo Instant messenger with emotion support.

The Ogo keypad consists of the regular QWERTY keyboard plus a 8-way navigations pad and several dedicated keys for the MailBox, Instant Messaging, Power On/Off, Compose, and home. You can press the Ogo shortcut key at any time to display a list of all your new e-mail and SMS messages, open IM chat sessions, and drafts of messages you have not yet sent.
You can also quickly have Ogo check for new e-mail from all of your IM and other e-mail
providers set up on your ogo. Highlight Send/Receive at the bottom of the Ogo pop-up and press

The 8-way navigation key consists of two “rings”. The outer rings keys are used to move between tabs while the up and down arrows scroll one page at a time (page up/down). The inner ring left and right arrows scroll left and right within a screen. Up and down arrows move
between lines in a screen.
