Note -- this news article is more than a year old.
UK based mobile network, O2 has shown off a device which it says will "take the place of all the notes traditionally placed on the fridge door", and will send text message reminders which mean every family member will know who needs to be where by when.
It connects to a home Broadband either wirelessly or using an ethernet cable. There is no in-built SIM and therefore no ongoing costs or monthly subscription.
Alistair Johnston, Marketing Director, Telefónica O2 UK, said: "We've developed the O2 Joggler with today's busy families in mind. It has been purpose built to help families better organise their lives."
The O2 Joggler is much more than an electronic calendar - it also comes with built in content services such as weather and news from Sky TV, along with traffic news from Trafficmaster.
The O2 Joggler can also be used as a digital photo frame. Up to 200 photos can be stored on the internal 1GB memory or through an external USB memory.
Coming soon, the O2 Joggler will let customers send 50 text messages every month to any mobile in the UK for free. It will also be possible to send texts to the O2 Joggler from any UK mobile.
The O2 Joggler will be available from early April, priced at £149.99, or free if taken instead of a handset at upgrade.
