Any Woosh customer who's been to the IPWireless site will have salivated over that handset with the mobile phone form factor. I doubt Woosh has any intention of launching major new services at their current cash burn rate but does anyone know if they have one of these in their possession for research purposes? And if I ordered one, would it be possible to configure it for Woosh?

The only issue is that a phone like that needs decent network coverage and Woosh can't necessarily deliver that at present. Their network is built around offering a fixed broadband service so they can get away with a limited number of cellsites because the modems have large aerials and can also have an external aerial fitted very easily. To offer something like this phone they would need an almost identical number of 3G sites as Vodafone.
