Moto if you read this, when will we finally see a MING like phone with WIFI? (of course, actually releasing a LInux SDK as opposed to J2ME would help, too)

Personally, I am more dissapointed that the Ming-A1200 doesn't have EDGE rather than WiFi. If it had EDGE, then WiFi would have been my feature request too.

Personally, I am more dissapointed that the Ming-A1200 doesn't have EDGE .

I was talking with a Moto engineer earlier this year, and asked if there would be a GSM version of the Moto Q anytime soon. Said engineer laughed and replied that the question was a popular one, but nobody would buy it because it would be very slow at downloading email and webpages. When I pressed a little further, the engineer admitted that Moto is (still) having trouble developing a good EDGE implementation.
