Yeah, but you have to have AT&T service which blows. At least here it
does, and it's TDMA which is no CDMA (must be *at least* 10 letters

But it is (the V70) an example of building something cool that also
has market appeal - but to get it built the design team had to fight
tooth and nail to convince the mgt that it would make money.
