[...] As reported earlier, the Channel 9 video is up.  I just love watching/listening to developers and product team members talk about the products they’ve built.  Channel 9 will never get boring because it features people talking (with passion) about the things they build.  Otto is no exception.  I wish our presidents and representatives seemed as sincerely passionate.

Steve, I think my ideal would be a PCMCIA slot, so I could share a card between my laptop and the Origami. I don't have an EVDO phone and it may be a long time before I do. That said, if a small (think RAZR) EVDO capable phone appears for $100, that could work for me. -John

Hi John. I dont understand your need for EVDO on the box? Of course, it would be nice but do you really want another data carrier subscription or to have to swap sim cards about? As far as i'm concerned, my mobile phone will be my data gateway and it'l always be with me. Data over BT through a phone is simple so why the high priority on it? Reasons it might not be on the box: EVDO doesnt cover all geographical markets. Europe for example. EVDO chipsets are probably expensive! Regards Steve.

It has a CF slot so EVDO can easily be done with that. Those cards are basically free with subscription anyway and you usually have to get them through the carrier anyway.
