fast forward

Two-way pagers finally have shrunk to the size of tiny one-way pagers. Glenayre Technologies' Santa Clara, Calif., division introduced AccessLink II, an alphanumeric pager that can be operated with one hand. It receives and replies to e-mail messages, holds an address book, communicates wirelessly with other portable devices and runs for 30 days on one AA battery. The device is available from Glenayre or these service providers: SkyTel, PageNet and MCI, which offers the pager only to its business customers.

At press time, prices were as follows: SkyTel, $195 for the pager and $24.95 per month for service; PageNet, $240 plus $24.95 for monthly service; and MCI, $225 plus $35 monthly. For details, contact Glenayre Technologies (800-BE-WIRELESS;, or call SkyTel (800-643-0323), MCI (800-444-3333) or PageNet (800-PAGENET).
