In the meantime, I've been playing around with the OpenMoko platform inside of the QEMU-arm emulator. Enjoy :)
The OpenMoko Interface
Running a Terminal
All in all the interface definitely needs some work, but as my iPhone toting coworker David Young said "how cute!"
The platform in general has a lot of potential in my opinion, it's still up for grabs whether FIC will completely miscarry on producing decent hardware to run the phone, but you never know. The biggest key will be whether open source developers, notable for producing some of the most horrid user-interfaces since Windows 95, can cope with the new design paradigm that a smaller touch screen interface creates. I'm going to be doing my part, and for that much I'm very excited.
Is that a penguin in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
