Startting this up so we can have a list of software that needs to be developed (user space)

Suggestions:
Mobile phone control: A dialer applicatoin that can do notification, perhaps bassed off d-bus
Address book: so we can cross refrence and call people from the adress book
SMS handler: there are many exsisting apps that do dilivery via the unix mail system, perhaps utilize that

Well, it looks like there'll be a modification to the actually Behind-The-Scenes Mail system. . (Sendmail server?) Which again looks to be yourr kind of thing. XP

As far as actual AT command structure etc goes, Gommunicator would be a good Code Base, at least for X and GPE. It's a Phone Answer/Call program, with SMS support.

http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/Gomunicator

That's the page.

GPE would be a better system to start working in I think, because the code for the Phone program is alot more mature than the Qtopia port, and a Fully Opie port is non-existent. Also, Several people seem to like my choice of Thunderbird, so that would be a good base to look at integrating with say. . a new Mail subsytem or subsystem modification to handle SMS, MMS and Email.

As for a testing platfrom. . The AudioVox, Ambiccom, Chi Mei (Mine), and Japanese Vodafone cards all seem to have Phones (Although the 3g Voda. . Not sure) and are tested under Linux on the Zaurus (I use mine regularly for GPRS, and have used it via minicom as an emergency phone.)

If it works on one, it should work on the other with little or no modification. The PDA OS base isn't near finalised yet, but I'm going to assume it'll be an OpenEmbedded variant of Some kind, so the latest OZ/GPE should work ok as a dev, test platform.

have you considerd evolution rather than t-bird? if the thing can run t-bird nicely, evolution should work too, and last I checked evolution was setup for more groupware sytems than t-bird. might be more versatile?
