Hey guys, you're missing the point. You need to stop thinking of the
openmoko  device being a standalone unit, you are always connected to
your pc when in mobile phone coverage. 

Just use your gprs data link.

Start thinking of the Neo as a portable 'viewer' to applications running
on standalone servers then you'll start seeing location is irrelevant.

(not that I don't think the concept is fantasy - though I respect Olle
for his work elsewhere to really call it point blank - his got the
skills to do it just because it couldn't be done).
