Indeed. I've been on busses in the Ecuadorian highlands, filled with indigenous people in traditional colorful garb -- with many of them yakking on cell phones. Amazing!
I look forward to reviews of OpenMoko. Not sure I'll be first in line since I just got a cell phone that works well enough (albeit somewhat crippled), but my eye is definitely on it for a future purchase. Perhaps version 2 of the hardware.
Is there any chance that US carriers could disable the use of such a device? Or punish you in some way?
