Hi, Thought http://hardware.slashdot.org/hardware/07/02/06/1931244.shtml was interesting - it would be cool to have an OGG decoder onboard a future Neo for iPhone style music-player/phone hybrid functionality in the free software context :-) -- Regards, Dave

Howdy, I'm in Vancouver too, just tested my phone (motorola L2) against the 850/1900 network and it works (registers with fido) while 900/1800 doesn't. You can only select them in those pairs but I'm not sure how that will work on the neo. Can anyone clarify some more? Regards Dave On Mon, 2007

I said this in the channel but you weren't there. We should be going forward with specs, not backward. By the time the next revisions come there'll be a whole new generation of hardware so the freerunner will then be lagging even more. Someone mentioned getting a faster cpu and my 2c are that I
