Hi Chris,

What it can make a huge different for a mobile is a application that 
allow that mobile to talk using skypo protocol.

As you should kn ow skype used a private protocol and it is not and 

So I suggest to you to snnifer a full conversation and try to copy this 
protocol and the application to create a opensource project compatible 
with skype for openmoko (if this has not been deployed).
