I am a Hungarian exchange student right now and I think I could help
you by sending in a couple articles about OpenMoko to some Hungarian
tech papers. Hungary (in general) is very opened to Linux (go to
Google Trends and search for Linux) and it has got a strong Un*x like
OS lover community. Hungary could be a strong market of OpenMoko. If
you have any existing articles, I could translate it into hungarian
and put it into press. Also I am just about to start a Hungarian
OpenMoko Community site. :)
