I think on this way there could be somethnig more powerful for the OpenMoko:
some sort of ad-hoc network between openmokos. hm.. let's see if I can
describe what i mean: Some sort of Adressed Walkie-Talkie with openmoko as
clients AND as repeaters. It should be possible, and useful for example in
companies where the OpenMoko is adopted as officaial phone, or for Trekking
groups, et cetera...
