messages you receive, it works OK. The keyboard is just large enough to
touch type with my size 7 hands.
I plan to write an owner's review of the device for BGT in the next week
or two. It works great for journaling on the trail, downloading to any

come with a price tag: $200 will buy the device and a year's service.

mail through a forwarding email address.
