Hi Jae,

You might want to check out <>  that a
friend of mine built (it's an enum for Asterisk). If you want his
contact details let me know - I'm sure he'd be happy to consult to FIC
for some free handsets.

Exactly what i've been thinking about too. Even SMS could go through
XMPP (as a configurable settings)

Anyways, i've registered a few domains thinking about this in the
future.  Not cybersquatting but just keeping our community ahead of the

The first was... the idea here was that people could register their phone
numbers on this site and using gprs or wifi, when users send a text
message it would check to see if the number is listed, if so use some
kind of xmpp to send the sms to the users phone. Similar to the ENUM
lookups for voip, but using xmpp. 

Then came... this expanded on the first and allowed multiple
communication ideas similar to the first post in this thread. (ideas:
sending vcards, voicemail directly to phone) 

The possibilities get pretty endless when you can control your own
destiny! The thing that will make this stuff successful is interop with
current desktop communication standards like xmpp and sip. This way
people without openmoko can still be a part of the communication
network. Obviously moko to moko is the best!
