Last week I wrote about the iPhone and it’s lack of openness. I mentioned the openmoko as an alternative. The company behind openmoko has just released it’s roadmap. The e-mail also contains the detailed hardware specs, and outlines their philosophy and approach, which is as they put it ‘unconventional’. They’ve got it exactly right. An open phone is what our community wants, and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on one. Hrm, I wonder if I could justify getting a second new phone in 6 months time… The only thing that the openmoko lacks is high-speed data – EDGE, but more importantly 3G. Maybe that’s the surprise that’s referred to for v2?
