Looks interesting, but I worry a bit about a release that speaks of
the "inventor of the mobile phone" who "made the first call in 1973".
Certainly there were "mobile" phones prior to that, and I really
don't think anyone "invented" the mobile phone, except perhaps in the
mind of his patent attorney.
Any mobile phone has to operate on somebody's network, and the
problem with a lot of the fancy units (like the iPhone) is that they
want to lock you in to a particular vendor, usually not the best one
The Nokia 770 looks interesting as well. Not a "phone" in the
traditional sense but it could probably do SIP over the 'net.
Just what I need, another toy I won't use after playing with it for a
month or so :-)
