    It will work longer ( on battery ) and can be used by kids with no fear of big bill or possible radiation risk.
    I think the evidence is fairly conclusive: "There is no health risk from mobile phone RF waves".

    Also, I only just found recently that turning off the mobile broadband might waste more data than leaving it on. Some carriers have a minimum 1mb data session. If you turn on broadband, post a single tweet and then go offline again, you will get charged for 1mb instead of the 3kb you really used.

    On Android it is really easy to turn off broadband and wifi. You can get a home screen widget.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Im not argue about RF waves...

    Idea is to have mini computer with me even if there's (temporary or permanently) no need for phone functions. And if it saves battery too - why not?

    I certainly won't be using it as I just switched to an Android device but it's revolutionary to the say the least. I'd consider atleast finding a way to Virtually Emulate the OS to see what all the fuss is about (:

    You don't have to. It's Ubuntu, albeit with a different DE.

    I hope it has at least a program to make phone calls too.

    Ubuntu *phone*? Is this a prank?

    I just found out that Canonical are launching an Ubuntu handset... O_o

    Is this a joke?

    Someone tell me that I've been had - this can't be real.
