Quick pH tester

I heard about a small device that when placed in the soil will give an accurate pH reading within minutes. Does anyone know where these are sold?

Let's hear some responses out there. Which of these things do you all have-what works best. The $4.95 one - the picture is rather vague. Is it a box full of litmus papers with a plastic holder?
Gempler's has one that gets a quick pH reading AND a fertilizer analyzer for $25.00. (with no mixing needed) This one might be what I want.
