I'm really curious on more info on how exactly this is supposed to work...Most people that need to get some work done on the road have at least some kind of smartphone, for which decent office suites are available..they want to do this through the mobile web browser + SMS? What exactly could you do with SMS? That would be more like creating a mobile Notepad experience, methinks.

If you notice, the nomination start date is listed as 15/05/2006, so you shouldn't expect to be able to apply to the beta before then. Hope this clears up a few things. :)
