This is why we MUST have an open-source baseband.

My order to shut down power / comms to the cell towers trumps your open - source baseband (if you even managed to get one going which is highly unlikely).

Reminds me of a 3Com Audry another product that had marginal appeal and bad timing.

In a lot of ways, Jobs was lucky with the iPad but he was also way smart in getting the iPhone out the door and accepted. No one, and I mean no one, had managed to get tablets to be anything but a niche item before the iPad. And people tried.
