'agpsd' will be the only closed source component on your phone

FIC is using openembedded to build their apps, which is already a community effort so FIC
gets the latest and greatest basically for free, and you can always build the latest and

Dunno, but the pressrelease mentioned funambol, so that should be 'plain' syncml.

no, since the lens is always crap. Spending $5 more during production on a lens would

1.1, limitation of the SoC

usb 1.1 can still be plugged into a 2.0 hub. Also note the '2.0' doesn't mean 480Mbit/s.

Kernel 188.8.131.52 isn't real enough for you? ;)
