Quad band phones are more common than they used to be but GPRS, even 
with EDGE, is too slow to carry VoIP traffic. I'm just of the opinion 
that Nokia already has a Symbian smart phone line (the communicator 9000 
and E90 series) and if they wanted to make the N700/800/810 in to the 
same kind of product that they'd have done so from the beginning -- 
unless they're just testing the waters with the Linux platform as the 
only real experience they have with it is in the hardened IPSO BSD/Linux 
firewall OS variant. Of course, whether any of those 3 dev groups work 
together or not is a mystery to me. I've worked for even small to 
mid-size orgs (less than 150 people) where you can still discover people 
across the building working with the same tech you've been twiddling 
with for just as long. So I can see Nokia making future Maemo products 
with voice integration but to discard the purely IP based platform would 
be, in my opinion, unfortunate.
