Watch the video and look at the slides. There is a blurred-out image of
project-B. I figured it was just a placeholder, but in the video he
holds up one of those same objects. So I think you can narrow your
brainstorming to something that makes sense in that form factor.

Page 22 of the PDF has a blurry image of a device that Sean holds up at 18:30 into the video.

Small, hand held, display, 3 buttons. Almost certainly no speaker. No GSM. Possibly bluetooth?

What would you use that for? ebook reader? brag book? PDA?

What could it give me that the GTA02 doesn't? Bigger screen? longer battery life? cheaper?

Still curious.

I think I heard from Maddog that it was going to be a commercial project. Something *not* for consumers, but for phone companies. So, something like GNU Radio?

Sadly, I couldn't attend his whole Open Telephony talk, and OH MY, it was the only track (of 10!) that we didn't manage to get any video from. A communication error, so very sad. I would've liked to see that talk...
