it does seem as if Google have made a big noise about openness, when in fact they mean they provide the SDK free - pretty much like Palm did! However, you can't actually get source code to the android platform, so we couldn't port it ourselves to Zaurus, nor even change many of its inner workings.

so, I'm with Mickey on this one, OpenMoko is still our best chance at a truly open mobile handset!
