they also make nice WIFI VOIP handsets if you're running asterisk or
similar, especially if you've got a charging dock so that they can stand
upright. Makes a quite decent alarm clock too.
most android phones will work in WIFI-only mode without a SIM card.
I'm still using my old HTC Desire HD, but i'll probably replace it
sometime in the next few years. When i do, i'll keep using it as a WIFI
handset for asterisk until the battery dies.
