The JVC HC-E100 PocketMail portable e-mail device lets you send and receive e-mail through most payphones, analog cellular phones or hotel PBXs, from anywhere in the United States. Simple to use, all you do is compose your message on the unit's alphanumeric keypad, call PocketMail's toll-free number, hold the device up to a phone handset and press a single button. Incoming e-mail messages (which can be filtered for spam) are displayed on a wide, backlit LCD screen. Use of the PocketMail portable e-mail service requires the purchase of a monthly subscription ($9.95 a month) from PocketScience Inc.
