You should talk to the people who invent the mobile phone
standards to use IPv6. Last I heard is that they went to IANA and RIPE
to allocate millions of IPv4 IP addresses for UMTS phones.
If they start using IPv6, it will really take off. OTOH, if they start
using IPv4 addresses, we'll soon need to switch to IPv6 anyway..
