Actually this idea wasn't for me (I've got a GSM account -- t-mobile),
just thinking of ways to make a neo available to more users.
Also, the main problem with using a PDA with a CF phone card is form
factor and power management -- they usually don't provide a method of
keeping the CF card powered on and ready to accept incomming calls
while the PDA itself is in sleep mode. And it's hard to get a pda
into a belt clip like a phone (plus no viberate alert mode, etc). If
these issues can be resolved with a phone device that uses the CF card
for its cell module, then it may be a good solution.
BTW, According to Sprint's info page on their CF card, it works with
the Sharp Zaurus so apparently it is already Linux friendly.
