WIKI still a POS

Maybe you are not happy because you think it's just a phone. To me
it's a complete programmable handheld computer which happens to have a
GSM phone feature. The phone is a fairly insignificant feature for
some of us. If all you want is a phone, go to the supermarket, they
have really nice ones there that don't come with any significant
documentation. I use one myself.

I am trying to develop GPS software for the OM. I have had about 15
minutes a day to work on it so far but it's been fun. I don't really
care (much) about navigation features, I care about data collection.
The competition is not TangoGPS or Garmin or Tom-Tom or anything OM is
likely to come out with.

Therefore documentation is vitally important to me.

Incidentally I borrowed a friend's T-Mobile SIM card and tried the
phone feature yesterday. It worked fine (including the documentation).
