I have now GTA04A4. Many thanks to Christ van Willegen for the donation! So we 
need kernel that does HW sound routing + some more work and we can get rid of 
the routing program for A4.

You can export contacts to vcf file and import them. SMS are stored in mail 
format, but i dont have any experience with syncing them.

language. I'd prefer if the keyboards were debian packaged. They could be 
easily installed then.
