I guess celular device can have it's advantages, but, there is a reason for the notebook to have a hand crank.
Most of the places and countries the machine will be deployed does not even have the power available to a lot (most) of their population. And if there is no power, I guess there is also no TVs to be used as screens and definatelly no cellular coverage.
Microsofts sollution only works if you have basic infrastructure in place.
a perfect example of such countries is tanzania... damn i heard they don't have electricity from 7am to 11:59pm for the past 3 months!
