GPRS for mobile phones

What's all the buzz about GPRS ?

GPRS is short for General Packet Radio Services. It transfers data over the GSM mobile phone network in small packets. According to this site, it is a packet-based wireless communication service that promises continuous connection to the Internet for mobile phone and computer users. This will enable you to make telephone calls and transmit data at the same time. Besides, you can browse the Internet in colour, send email from wherever you are, video chat with friends and interact with multimedia sites using mobile devices.

You say it is packet-based. But what's a packet?
