No, that was just the argument some were projecting onto me; my  
argument isn't that "you must include wifi" in the Neo v1 no matter  
what the cost. My argument is that the GSM+WiFi/VoIP combination is a  
revolution waiting to happen and that OpenMoko clearly won't be  
player in this until it gets WiFi.

By the time it does get WiFi, however, the revolution may already  
have happened, and OpenMoko will simply be joining the bandwagon,  
which is a shame because of the potential mindshare in being a  
pioneer of such a device.
