You pay through the nose for it because you HAVETO sign up for a 2 year contract minimum. The iPhone is AT LEAST twice as expensive as the Moko. In other words, if the Moko came with a 2 year contract it would basically be free. Please actually compare apples to apples. - Rob _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
