openmoko

16 07 2007

I’ve been following openmoko for quite a few months now and actually started getting a multiuser environment together, development version of the neo-1973 is out. However parents won’t let me order one :(. Please mum, I need it for development, qemu is just too tedious for such development.

Good news is in a few weeks I’ll hopefully have a bank account I can use to order it.

For those of you that have read this blog and got confused, see http://openmoko.org/ and http://openmoko.com/

This release doesn’t as at the time of design there weren’t any wifi chips that were open enough and low powered enough for the device, but in the october (general public) release there will be wifi.

Why wait for a Moko? Nokia’s N800 (although not a phone) seems to be a perfect Linux PDA. WiFi, Bluetooth, Flash, Bash, GStreamer, Python, ect. Its even got a camera. But hey, I’m gonna wait for an iPhone.

But, is it as open as open as debian? Or is it locked to one provider (Phone costs $200 but contract costs $1000), and also the iPhone is definitely locked to a particular provider,. The nokia also can’t take phone calls, other than voip.

Neither of the 2 you mentioned have GPS, or are truly open. We have some big plans for openmoko.

The N800 uses a Debian based OS. Plus there is also a GPS kit which can be purchased for it. Either-way, It will be great to see how OpenMoko turns outs.
