Hasbro announces a communication gadget called ChatNow.

Hard to find toy, best bet is eBay

ChatNow looks like a cell phone and lets kids "call" or "text" each other, with technology similar to a walkie-talkie. Each ChatNow comes with a seven-digit "Buddy Number" that can be used like a phone number so kids can call each other directly within a 2-mile radius.

Other features include 10 ring tones, text messaging and a flashing light to let users know they have an incoming call. ChatNow can also take up to 30 digital photos that can be animated with cartoonish eyes or wild hairstyles.
ChatNow will be in stores this fall and cost $74.99 for two ChatNow devices.
More details in Hasbro press-release.

Remember the Cybiko? It was introduced in 2000. Same concept. It is dead now.
