[News] Google's Phone Gains Debian GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Debian gets ported to the G1, makes nice with Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Recent firmware updates may have aimed to shut down such shenanigans, but it 
| looks they were a little too slow to stop Jay Freeman (a.k.a. Saurik) from 
| going to town with his newly jailbroken G1 and installing Debian on the 
| handset.   


Google fanboys will love the G1

,----[ Quote ]
| WHILST APPLE'S Ithingey feels like a portable video player with phone 
| functionality shoe-horned in, T-Mobile's G1 feels more like a regular HTC 
| handset that has had an engine change. Bizarrely, the INQ quite liked it.   


Google's Android becomes more like OpenMoko (thanks to hacking) and OpenMoko
will gain Android soon. Voluntary convergence.


Open phone hardware vendor frees schematics

| OpenMoko has promised to publish schematic diagrams for its latest hardware
| design, the Neo FreeRunner. Schematics should enable community developers to
| create alternative firmware for the device, in order to better adapt it to
| entirely new purposes.


First Openmoko Custom Phone Now Available and Wears a Debian Plaid Kilt

,----[ Quote ]
| The Openmoko Neo Freerunner phone was released only a few weeks ago, and
| already, a customized version called the W.E. Phone is now available for
| purchase. So what's the difference between the naked-as-a-baby Neo and the
| Canadian-based W.E.? The latter comes with a full bundle of custom Google
| applications, on top of the core GNU/Linux OS base with dialing, SMS and
| contacts.


OpenMoko Neo Freerunner - Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Openmoko, born as a Free Software project under  GPL and LGPL license, is
| dedicated to delivering an open software stack on mobile platforms. Openmoko
| shipped its first product, the Neo 1973, on July 9 2007; and then turned into
| a start-up company with one aim: create great mobile products using the
| Openmoko stack: Open. Mobile. Free.
| The first Openmoko product, the Neo 1973, sold exclusively through Openmoko
| Online Shop. It sold out in early February 2008.
| Openmoko started selling the Neo FreeRunner (GTA02), the second generation of
| Neo, on July 3, 2008. It is available through the Openmoko Online Shop or
| national distributers.
| I received my FreeRunner as part of the first batch of orders shipped on July
| 7th.  I've now been playing with it for 10 days and these are my impressions.
| [...]
| All said and done I really like the phone.  And, like the main devs, am
| hesitant to call it a "phone".  It is really a handheld Linux computer that
| happens to have GPS and a GSM phone built-in.


FreeRunner Linux phone sells out, more on the way

,----[ Quote ]
| Less that one week after going on sale via its own e-commerce site, the
| 900MHz version of OpenMoko's Neo FreeRunner Linux phone has sold out, but
| don't despair yet as more are on the way.
