Help with radio comms

Hi all,
be much obliged if someone could help with the below:

I need two radio units much like these - but to buy in Australia

For cycling in France (and shredboarding in ze Aussie Alps)
Key, though, is the ability to have something like this

Single pin coiled earpiece with PTT
Does anyone know if these are around in Australia (I have not checked Jaycar etc yet)
Equivalent license free radios from Audiovox, Motorola etc are fine, but they need to be very slim and small for going in cycling pockets (in particular our knicks have radio pockets sewn in)

I've found cell phones to work much better and everyone has one already, you can even get fancy headset's with a button to talk, I think the crackberries come with it.

Just thinking of the simple solution.
