Korea-based Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) has developed an HSDPA slider device running Qplus embedded Linux called the Mobile Device Communicator, or MCC. The unit was designed specifically for ETRI’s Esto software solution but could be "modified to cope with application-specific consumer environments."
