Early this year, a small company called Universal Cellular Inc. announced that it had pioneered a combined cellular phone and pager small enough to be held in your hand. The product was a hit at a Las Vegas trade show in January because it was the first device that would allow people to screen calls that came in on their pagers--something that many people already do by carrying separate devices.

For the busy professional on the run, carrying a pocket-size cellular phone can be both a blessing and a curse. Despite its obvious conveniences, a portable cellular phone can also be a nuisance when it rings during an intimate dinner at a fancy restaurant or while you're negotiating a sharp curve on a winding highway. For one in five cellular users, the solution has been to carry both a cellular phone and a pager.

Universal Cellular Inc. said today it plans to introduce the first pocket-sized cellular telephone with a built-in pager, allowing the owner to screen calls. "While people on the move want to be in touch, they also want to maintain a level of privacy," said James Wohl, founder and chief executive officer. "The user is both in touch and in control, but is never forced to accept a call when it is inconvenient."
