Sounds like a joke. Can you imagine someone using this solution? Except
very few (most hardcore) geeks on the planet. Let's remember: mobile
phone is a PORTABLE device. Bunch of wires from USB hub + hub + usb
adapter will at least make this thingie hardly usable as, er... phone.
P.S. As for me, I'm still do not understand, why there is no WI-FI built
in. This is a BIG hardware design mistake IMHO. Linux without network is
something like North Pole without snow. And the only somehow popular
networking in public places is WI-FI.
