I'm a Blackberry user. I've got too much stuff in my pockets.
As a user of a Blackberry and a real estate agent, I often find my pockets crammed with stuff. Keys, wallet, business cards, gum, my phone, my eKEY...you get the picture. Sometimes I wish I could carry a purse, at least then I'd have room for more. I guess I could carry one, but I think people might find it a bit strange to see. Oh well, that's not the issue here.
Blackberry and GE Security eKEY have announced the eKEY Fob. They actually have announced it before, but now it appears they have a more definitive timeline. According to a recent email from GE Security, the eKEY Fob will be available mid-December. So far they support the Pearl, Curve, and the 8800 series. They will adding the Bold and Storm soon. The Fob translates bluetooth signals into infrared, allowing the Blackberry to communicate with the lockbox.
In honor of the announcement, GE Security has a special offer.
For a limited time, agents who purchase a new Blackberry from Letstalk.com will receive a free eKEY Fob (or you can opt to receive a 4GB Sandisk MicroSD Card). The eKEY Fob is listed as an approximately $50 value, so I guess that is the price it will be going for. If you don't have a Blackberry and have been thinking about one, now is a good time to do it (offer expires December 31, 2008) - and the offer is good for all the major carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Alltel).
