I'm still holding out for that open source phone

I too hope Openmoko will make it.


I've looked at their phone and the hardware platform is too anaemic to be able to compete in todays market.

At a minimum they should add a camera and a GPS module, the openmoko phone would have been fantastic somewhere in the mid 90's.

Or perhaps they should aim at the non-smartphone market.

That's possible, but the 'hack-potential' of a non-smartphone is quite limited. Once a fully open sourced phone with that sort of gear on board hits the market I'm fairly sure that hackers would flock to it.
