Of course, it shouldn't need it, but an associated distro / dedicated app
for computers may unleash features. And can become a paid service if you
don't want to run into the hassle of maintaining your own webserver (with
professionnal grade backup and availability services...).

Yup, i did. Still, the need for refactoring isn't that big, thanks to the
awesome screen resolution of the neo... Makes me think of opera mini's
refactoring process.

Sadly, the lack of EDGE is a huge impairement for internet-based services
usability (google maps, wikipedia, geomashups...) :-(

Plus, mobile carriers (at least in France) aren't going in the direction of
unlimited data access, more like "you MUST buy all the features from me and
it's illegal to circumvent it". No wonder french mobile carriers have the
highest rentability per client in whole europe.
