Hi Everybody,
I follow gta02-core loosely, mostly just happy to read the updates :). 
Anwyay, here's a modem idea that is hopefully feasible -- apologies if 
you've discussed it already.

According to the openmoko-community list, there are 3G dongles such as 
the huawei E169 3G USB dongle that work as a phone with the freerunner 
and the asterisk software.  If such a thing works well as a phone, it 
wouldn't be unreasonable to fabricate a phone without the modem, and 
include a usb port/slot for the modem to be placed in afterwards.

This would allow more modularity, but would impose different size/layout 
issues, and maybe a higher end-product cost.  Hopefully the cost would 
drop eventually.

Anyway, glad to read the normal gta02-core updates.  Keep up the good work!
