I looked at that over a year ago and many times since. If you want a
sensible open source phone Trolltech's greenphone is better.
Anyway they would never answer any queries nor was it clear who would
make it. Though I see they have real addresses now on the site.
Personally for a phone I want a real keypad, you have to look too
closely at a touch screen. Or if it's a mini-PDA/Phone I want bigger
screen and qwerty. Both of course can trivially take SD cards and play
MP3 / DivX etc.
Can you really actually buy one of the OpenMoko yet? Price is OK, but
styled IMO like fisherPrice.
Anyone got a 3G/HSDPA data card (PCMCIA) working in a handheld gadget as
a SIP phone?
If the iPhone was HTC it would be a 2 day novelty. I hope it's more
reliable than Apple's other cheaply made Chinese products.
