Well, call me when it has WiFi. I just don't think this thing's going  
to get the start it should have got.

I've now read the reasons for its exclusion, but having read Sean's  
marketing PDF to the carriers one can't help but wonder if OpenMoko  
is just yet another victim of the carrier monopoly on mobile  
communications, which would beg the question: would WiFi really ever  
come to the device?
