Motorola Open Source

I was going to leave Andrea a comment on his post about Motorola open source, but Blogger comments seem to be screwy at the moment. I’ve spoken to a few people from Motorola and I have to admit that honestly I have no idea what’s going on there. I keep getting told that I can’t yet built Linux native apps for these phones, though that might be incorrect. So that’s my answer to why I’m looking at the Greenphone so far, I know that I can write native apps and do what I want. I’m not so sure with the Moto stuff. Anyone tried it?

  1. Since you don’t leave comments on my blog I’ll write you a comment. :P

    I have to say that I haven’t done any more checking, but since the package is offering all the files it seems odd to me that with a little hack you won’t be able to run your own apps.
    I am thinking to linksys. When they released the firmware it wasn’t meant to run your own apps, but developers got around it.

    I used to have a netgear router at home and I had found pages that explained how to start the telnetd that was pre-installed, but not started.
    I guess it’s the same.

    We should run some contest as it seems to be “a la page”, lately (thinking about windows on the Xbox or on the Mactel).

    I tried to leave you a comment, really I did. I blame Blogger! ;-)

    I might have to go and grab myself one of these moto phones to see just what I can do with one, might provide some interesting hackery.
