just was reading Harald's weblog where he writes that there was so much
feedback on his A780 hacking and that people are all over it. Some how people seem
to want to be able to have a fully controllable mobile phone running software they can
change them self. I myself wanted to have this forever so I started working on the
Linux port for the HP iPAQ h63xx which by the way makes some progress.
The phone is still not usable (which is more of an audio driver issue then a GSM
issue) but this should be fixed soon. Also there are other projects (like the HTC
BlueAngel Linux port) which all ready support making phone calls.
They even have a nice looking phone GUI!
Anyway I think phones running Linux will be one big thing in the future (or at least in
the future of hardware hacking, like the Linksys WRT).
Also I started putting to gether a OpenPhone
website some weeks ago... but this is work in progress!
