My Content

First, I would like to say that I have been waiting for the openmoko for quite some time. I was excited to finally see an open source phone, and wondered what the idea would do to the industry in general.
I don't want to sound too harshly critical of everyone's work. It is definantly above my skill levels. I do appreciate the time so many people have spent on the project.

Having said that... I have now seen what the phone is like and have one question.


Is the Openmoko supposed to be a real phone for the general public, or is it just a new gadget for the developers to play with?


I mean, the PHONE takes 2 minutes to start. (Why is the CLI visible during this time anyway?)
Why should a PHONE need a stylus? The on screen keyboard is ridiculously small. If the commands can't be entered with one's fingers on the touchscreen - then the UI needs simplification.
Why does a device that sits in the PALM OF YOUR HAND even have a "desktop" ?

This is a phone after all, not a really, really small laptop. Should it look just like a really small desktop operating system?
I guess I assumed that the new way of doing things had extended to the interface.
