Phone walkie-talkies

This is something that seems to be really taking off in the US, but that I haven’t seen over here in the UK yet. Push a button on your mobile phone and it connects you instantly to someone elses phone. I can imaging it encourages a different kind of conversation style, if the connection is as quick as it sounds. Nextel says that encourages shorter call times, for example.

I’m not sure I like the idea of one of these stuffed toys “egging me on” while playing a game, but these are an interesting personal expression of communication.
