The Greenphone hasn't even been delivered yet, and is the most open mobile phone out there.

'hasn't even been delivered yet' + 'out there' = contradiction

Excellent. I really welcome this step from Trolltech!

In the near future there will be more completely open source phones appearing (hint hint...) and the more the merrier it is for the open source movement.

If it wasn't for competing phone software stacks with fragmentation et. al., I'd welcome all this 100%...

*shrug* Let the most open system win...

Only for the pedantic. Greenphone was announced, and is being sold, so for all intents and purposes, it is 'out there'. I have one, it is no longer a secret, my wife and friends have seen it, so it is 'out there'.

I am quite sure the carriers and operators are paranoid about "open" telephony stacks, not to mention the regulations involved... Most phones are subsidized by the operators/carrier, which is one reason why they can be so inexpensive.

To lpotter.

Bottom line me.

Can I use the Greenphone via Bluetooth for connectivity from my C3000 and Nokia 770?

If so, then I'm on board.

Here's a review of a hands-on development with the Greenphone SDK for the Greenphone. Very basic development - no demo of any GUI app yet - but initiation steps instead.

I agree -- the SIEMENS S45 is a really good phone. Battery life is nothing but stunning.
