OpenMoko – World’s First Integrated Open Source Mobile Communications Platform

at 2:58 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets

We have all seen the new Apple iPhone that was just released at CES. Now have a look at the new OpenMoko open source phone that has some similar sexy lines. The specifications sound impressive, what do you think?

Have a look at the presentation (PDF).

“Until now, mobile platforms have been proprietary and scattered. With the release of OpenMoko, which is based on the latest Linux open source efforts, developers now have an easy way to create applications and deliver services that span all users and provide a common “look and feel”. OpenMoko also offers common storage models and libraries for application developers, making writing applications for mobile phones fun and easy while guaranteeing swift proliferation of a wide range of applications for mobile phones. With such extremely high quality open frameworks, developers will be armed with exactly the tools they need to revolutionize the mobile industry.
