Not for the price ~$1,000 if you could get it in single unit, or at least low, quantities. It seems you need to buy the evaluation kit for $2300+95 shipping.  Most dev kit vendors cater to businesses only, so they can charge far more than most consumer price ranges. Part of this is warranted by the low volumes they have to amortize (spread out) the cost over, but mostly it is because they can.

Cool, but.....

$122 base price
CPU 520 MHz $12
WiFi $26
GPS $59
GPRS & cell $94
LCD $77
Keypad $6
Battery $10

price for 1 unit = total•2,5= $1,015

And that's without software installed!

that price is only if they allow you to buy a single unit.
in order to be able to buy a single unit, you will have to buy the evaluation kit of this "phone" which cost $2300 plus $95 shipping.... so i guess it won't fit in my x'mas budget...
