It looks like a really good phone, and will be a major enabler for FMC
(fixed-mobile convergence), as having wifi+umts+bluetooth in the same
device presents fantastic opportunities for setting up paths across all
kinds of transport networks.  Adding GPS is also interesting, so that
presence info can become /where/ people are, rather than merely if
they're connected.  See the new TomTom (910 ?) for being able to see
where you are /and/ where your friends are. 

This stuff is the future, folks...
