DataWind claims that page load times are less than seven seconds over GPRS thanks to patented technology used in the PocketSurfer2. One of the coolest parts is that there is no monthly service fees associated with the device. The first full year of service with 20 hours of usage per month is included in the purchase price. Heavy users can pay an additional GBP 5.99 a month for unlimited usage. The second year of service is a max of GBP 40.00. The cost of the PocketSurfer2 itself is GBP 179.99 or about $370 here in the U.S. Too bad it seems the device is not going to be available for U.S. geeks. Via PocketSurfer
