I have thought about this for sure, although I don't like skype and
would prefer a generic SIP client with a compact audio codec like GSM.
I did search around a bit and it seems clear that the Newton can handle
this, as it has GSM playback already.

This would be a super slick Newton function, although it could only
support calling out, as I don't think the newton could wake up when
dialed? Dunno really and certainly need a hot shot developer to make it

I am certainly ready to pay $100 for this application.
