Good to hear there are developers keen on making the "it just works"
work for normal users, I'm moving more and more from a technical geek
to a just need it to work for me user:-). Also very pleasing to see
there is a lot of Mac users interested in this project. I assume many
others will find this project as I did after been disillusioned by
the Iphone and looking for something else that will fill the need of
a phone that will allow me to share my Mac apps and data I chose with
my phone. Looking forward to a phone that allows me to use it the
way I want to use it, can take it with me every where I go (different
countries) and swap SIM for the local carrier so I don't get hosed by
roaming charges etc. Now there is an idea, program the ability to
copy SIM card profiles so I can switch between SIMs with out
physically inserting it when I need it. Not sure how possible that
is, don't know enough about how the SIM cards work.
Keep up the good work.
