>Openmoko uses GTK+-2.x for GUI which is under LGPL. There is a lot of
im clients available, and there has been a discussion about it in the
list. Try to search up old posts.

to be open this means the IM is only jabber or Rs, the serverless IM.
I would suggest the serverless.
GTk.. does this mean, every app needs that too or could a QT gui be
used as well?
As RS IM is a c++ library, maybe someone is interested to make a GTK
gui? A FLTK gui is already there as well.

You also run into issues of licencing, the TV phone I used required a
licence fee each month, there's no way they would allow such a thing
to be open source compatible as people would be able to hack it.

DVB-T does not need any licence agreement, it is just terrestrial
recieving on a phone.
Therefore the display should be bigger... So this requires not a media
player, but as well some hardware adjusting, a DVB-T Reciever chip and
a bigger display.
