A large part of the paging market consist of women users. By combining the alert mechanism (vibrator, LED, transducer, etc.) into a purse strap or brief case handle, the female market is provided with an attractive alterna- tive to the bulky traditional pager attached to a belt, pocket or wrist. This is accomplished by adding the alert mech- anism to the purse strap and providing an interface (con- nector) to be connected to the traditional pager. By doing this the pager can be put inside the purse and still main- tain the capability to alert the user of incoming messages.
