I don't know but I heard on tv tonight a little detail that is the way for someone to figure this entire subject out.....the local tv news has been turning lots of attention to these machines down here in florida and I expect GSM to get some very good press in this regard but heres the tidbit I heard.......each state certifies the machines that they will allow each county to buy...currently there are 4 companies certified in florida....this information is publicly available from each state and each state has same procedure to only allow certain machines to be used...so if someone wanted they could dig this info up.......or at least find out the main players and then call them and ask where they are certified and where they have an installed base.......... at least in florida I found info on the state election page that lists the installed base county by county and I bet this info would be available for every state.....

there is no standard state required unit in any state as far as I know....part of the news was a call for such in Florida.....right now just one of these 4 companies in florida must be used but I am sure there will be much talk about making a standard after this fiasco .....GSM would seem to have a good chance of much of the business in Florida by virtue of having a fair share already and the fact that it seems to have worked well
