At last i have the time to write about this incredible mobile platform.
OpenMoko is an open source mobile communications movement with a mission to create a platform that empowers people to customize their phone, much like a computer, in any way they see fit. It is a platform that focuses on innovation, usability, reliability and quality.
Because OpenMoko is based on the latest Linux, developers now have an easy way to create applications and deliver services that span all users and provide a common â€œlook and feelâ€.
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.
The name OpenMoko means Open as in Open Source, and Moko stands for Mobile Kommunikations.
