    The inter@ctive 2 way pager, from Research In Motion, is more than any others a witness of times now gone.
    Not so long before everybody got equiped with cellphones, there existed an era (a short era) when people carried "pagers". Pagers were designed exclusively to present text messages to the owner; messages could be sent to the owner from "anyone" by the use of dedicated tools (special phone numbers mostly), and were transmited over the cellular network.
    Hard to believe now that we are all used to exchange text messages on cellphones, but there had to be a pionneer device that would do just that : exchange text messages. Not only receive, but "exchange", as in "send also".
    That's what the inter@ctive 2 way pager is. Text messaging (receives AND sends) and just that! All in a form factor that, i guess, nobody would ever think of carrying along all day long today; but at the times, there was apparently no other device of that size that would do that much.
    Would it be just for what it is capable of, chances are i would not have been interested in the device in the first place, but there's a little more to it. If RIM had only worked on two way pagers until today, the company would certainly not be as famous as it is today. But as they kept innovating, they released the Blackberry, which was to meet the success we know. So, well, in a way, the inter@ctive 2 way pager allowed the Blackberry to exist, and that would be reason enough to enter my collection!
