[maemo-users] N810 with GSM radio

in fact, given the ease with which the N800N810 can be tethered to an 
EVDO or HSDPA capable mobile handset, my own biggest complaint has been 
with my electron "guzzling" mobile phone which lasts all of ~20 minutes 
when running with the EVDO turned on and tethered to the N810.

Clearly it would be better to carry only one piece of electronics vs two 
but, if I can solve this power consumption problem by upgrading to a new 
mobile handset I will be satisfied with a 2 device solution.

Maybe there is a market for a fairly simple  layer 1 pocket device 
(evdo/hsdpa/LTE/WIMAX modem + a big battery) that also supports 
bluetooth for tethering to whatever smart device the user has on hand.
