Chris & Daniel,

cg> Q- does anybody in the 1st world still use dialup ?

Yes.  At home and at the city apartment.

dk> We will not use PPP with old analog modems, but with gprs ...

I view the exclusion of analog modems as an unfortunate 
design decision.  Imagine that you exclude 5% of potential users 
because of lack of modem support.  Then exclude another 5% 
for lack of printer support.  Then another 5% for failure with 
a certain FTP server ... and so on.  The net effect is that by 
relatively small economies in implementation you exclude 
a large population of potential users.  Conversely, relatively 
small investments in implementation can allow a significantly 
larger audience.
