The thing every high-schooler fears is getting his cell phone taken away, which is why the Scholastic Elecronic Text Messengers are allowed to exist. These inconspicuous walkie-talkie like devices can send 40-character SMS messages from a 600-foot radius.
Up to 24 friends can be linked up and texting with the Scholastic Elecronic Text Messengers. Forty characters and a memory for only 14 messages is incredibly paltry, but when you consider that for $17 you get two of these bad boys, it isn't so bad. The future of text messaging is upon us, and it looks a lot like the past.
