What I had meant is that I hope they find away to allow 1000mA charging 
while powered off so that you don't have to let it tricle charge for the 
entire night to power it on at only partial power. Of all the phones 
I've owned none of them had this problem and it's probably the most 
annoying problem I can think of with the OpenMoko. Lucikly for me I'm 
the type to plug in my phone daily so it isn't a problem but I could see 
it becoming one in the future when more and more people start using the 
OpenMoko products.
