Oregon Scientific offers slimline walkie talkies

Oregon Scientific are pitching their new "super slim" walkie talkies, the TP391s, as the perfect way to stay in touch during summer activities, for the grand total of £49.99.

Whether camping, at festivals, or even on a city break, the company says their pocket-friendly dimensions, 18-hour battery life, 10 polyphonic ringtones, 5 kilometre range and 8 channels mean they are a cheaper alternative to mobile phone calls.
