My main question is how to manage the PIM. Will you wait for the FSO PIM
implementation or is there any other way to manage contacts and SMSs
(first of all) without using the SIM?

Due to my old SIM card (small space), I never use it for saving
informations, so I need a good stack to save my contacts (using more as
more informations per person as I can provide) and messages. Qtopia imho
provides a good way to manage the contacts (from an user point of view),
Is it planned something of similar?

However, how will you merge tichy and paroli? I mean, I find tichy a
nice project, but I don't like it to be used as a laucher, since we've
already illume for it and ihmo it does a fantastic job.

I already tried to run it on my device some weeks ago, but it never ran
