if it has USB host, then there's always the option of an external USB
adaptor, and also wifi too.

remember you will want two phones anyway, one to be your
test/development platform and the other to be your live one... so
support the project AND get up to speed developing by being an early
adopter. Then when things settle, version 1.1 of the phone with extras
will be around!

in my experience, the people who make the most impact, have the most fun
doing the interesting and new stuff, and gain the kudos and the chicks
are the early adopters, as they set the direction. people who come in
late find it hard to catch up let alone innovate!
