| Some people have compared the Neo1973/OpenMoko project with Nokia's

| CDMA capability), and extending right to the actual creation of the devices
| themselves. According to Nokia's vice president of convergence products

| the 770 Internet Tablet are the only devices ever developed to be internet
| native from the ground up."
