The thread on Linux phones on this list was useful.
Have some related questions:
Availability of wifi connectivity appears much less as compared to bluetooth
and limited mostly to high end models. Not sure whether why it's so and

In theory it should be possible to use a USB wifi adapter to enable wifi
connectivity for cell phone/PDA. Has anyone tried such a thing?
Also, what all interesting possibilities do Linux phones enable thanks to
being open. My wish list is:
1. When the phone is a part of a LAN (using whichever technology - wifi,
bluetooth, usb LAN), is it possible to operate (receive and make calls, SMS
etc.) entirely from a(ny) computer terminal on the network?
2. Is it possible to connect to a streaming media server available on the LAN
to view/listen to media content through the phone? Has anyone tried such
