I want to start developing apps for openmoko but i haven't being able to 
find any tools for that. i have browsed the wiki, projects and the other 
sections of the website and no luck.

I'm interested on developing some thin client apps on the openmoko 
framework as a proof of concept for my masters thesis on low coupled 
distributed applications so it would be great if somebody could give me 
some links for the documentation and developer tools.

P.D. I also want to purchase a phone it looks like a very interesting 
combination technology and philosophy!!

thanks in advance.
