Samsung upgrading its UbiCell CDMA base station to 3G next year

Samsung has announced that their UbiCell Personal CDMA Base Station will go 3G in 2010. But other than that, it's pretty hush hush.

Basically, the station eliminates the need for any pesky land line services. The plug-and-play station provides in-home cellular service securely over existing public broadband networks. It's pretty much functional straight out of the box, being that you just connect the device to an internet router via Ethernet, then plug it in to a power outlet, configure the network, and boom, you're done.

There are no definite details on an exact release date, carrier or price. While I don't have much need for a land line at home (thus I don't have one), I can see how this could be useful for people who work at home. Do any of you use a base station over having a land line?
