    I only wish we had more hotspots down here in Brownsville… I took a trip up to Austin a couple weeks ago, and WiFi service was *everywhere*. It was unbelievable.

  2. Indeed. Apparently a lot of companies at CeBit were showing off wifi phones, and Nokia (?) pledged to begin manufacturing them soon.
