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.
