Wondering if anyone has looked at getting the Kensington Vo200
Bluetooth Internet Phone [1] working with linux; although after
searching for a bit, I'm guessing the answer is "no". (The Vo200 is a
PC Card sized device that charges inside a Cardbus sized slot).

I think there is a good chance the bluetooth functionality would work
since that is pretty well standardized, however I can't get to the
point of testing that as I have no Windows boxes and as stated in the
docs (which I couldn't find online):

"IMPORTANT! You must install and run the [windows only driver]
software in order to charge your Vo200."

If anyone would find this device useful and would like to take a crack
at getting the charging to work, I'll send you the device gratis
(reply off-list w/ address).

Otherwise hopefully this thread will be found by the next person who
thinks this device might be a nifty addition to their GNU/Linux VoiP
gadgetry :-)

[1] Kensington surprises with an ingeniously designed VoIP phone that
hides in your laptop's PC Card slot.
