You can make VOIP calls, FWIW. Any pocket that would hold the iPhone
would likely hold the N800. My point is that (in my opinion) it is not
significantly less portable than the iPhone. It's also much more
flexible if you are willing to make the size/cost tradeoff. It also does
not tie you to a single wireless carrier. As long as your phone has
Bluetooth and a data plan, it doesn't matter who your carrier is.
