First, I'm not a SMS user (I use email.), so you can take this comment
for whatever its worth.
This is just a very general statement, but I personally think that
designing features that will only work with other OpenMoko phones is a
bad idea. Yes, there are some ideas that will probably only work
between similar/identical devices, but they are probably going to be
very specific and not receive as much overall development time.
My challenge is just to think bigger. Think how this could be
incorporated to work with *any* phone. Then you can have a much larger
group of people to brainstorm, test, and bugfix. We have enough
protocols and standards to support. Creating yet another one isn't
really going to help that much. Also, I don't know anyone else that is
planning on getting a OpenMoko device, so its pretty pointless for me at
this point. I know you've got to start somewhere, but starting out a
battle fighting uphill isn't the best of ideas.
Sorry if I completely missed the point.
