Enabling perhaps a personal home dialup internet gateway via a GSM voice

(If the mobile operators tighten their grips on "authorized" GPRS traffic?)
(If your mobile operators don't offer prepaid access to GPRS/internet


Lurking her more than a while, I strangely not seen this HW request.

A reasonably general digital signal processor on the phone.

Opening possibility's for all kind of things. accelerated 
decoders/encoders for audio and video, voice recognition and 
fingerprint, 2D graphic acceleration, 3D graphic acceleration, 
accelerated image (think gimp filters) or just any advanced operation... 
or just making up for missing FPU.

While probably more power hungry then respective dedicated chip, it's 
probably a lot more efficient then the ordinary CPU... and more powerful 
and flexible.
