I have several devices, all which are portable, all which can use WiFi, but none are GPRS/3G.So, I bought a MiFi (or HUAWEI e5830 for the real name) which gives you a mobile hotspot for 5 or more WiFi capable devices thought a 3G connection. http://www.trustedreviews.com/peripherals/review/2009/10/07/3-MiFi-Huawei-E5830/p1I picked mine up from EBay, of course, for 65GBP a couple of months ago. I used it for my laptop, iPod Touch and now my Eken. Its basically a portable 3G Wireless Router with firewall etc. that can run for several hours on battery and is 10x5x1 cm in size, fitting nicely in your pocket. I have a 3G subscription in DK where I live, and when in UK I use a 3 PAYG Broadband SIM for between 5 and 15 GBP per 30 days.A Generic firmware upgrade gives you much more functionality than the 3 firmware that comes with it (free download), and indeed some EBay sellers do this for youYou can, of course, then turn your 120GBP iPod Touch into an iPhone (minus the GPS) by using either SIP or Skype and a headset for the calls. Not to mention your Eken.
