Phonescoop reports based on FCC records that new data centric device features PMG (Personal Mobile Gateway), a Bluetooth-based technology from IXI Mobile (IXI Mobile was also involved in the Bluetooth Wristwatch Seiko Patch).
PMG will allow the ogo to connect to other PMG devices nearby. PMG could also link the ogo to a phone for voice service, which is not included in the device. ogo supports e-mail and instant messaging functions of the AOL, MSN, and Yahoo! portals. Service starts at $14.99 per month.
Clearly the ogo is not as powerful as the sidekick. AT&T will most likely target teens with the oqo.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
