PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, the CyanogenMod team is teasing something new. My guess is that we're either looking at the CM team getting early access to new Android versions, or - and this is something I really hope - an OEM, preferably a large one, has decided to ship a device with CyanogenMod preinstalled. A boy or girl can dream.

Any one noticed the brief flash of a phone, picturing a carrier called FREE?

Perhaps they're partnering with the Free Mobile french carrier? http://mobile.free.fr/ ;)

Ah, that might make sense, or it was just the network the phone was configured with at the moment. Never heard of free before, but it makes sense that its a carrier as that is where the carrier name goes.

Some people were speculating wildly that they would provide seamless voip over wifi or something ( similar to what they are doing with google voice and SMS). So it would display "free" when you are able to use voip.

That would surprise me, as it would be an obvious usability problem if the same area was used for carrier name and as a voip promotion area.
