Do you have source for the firmware of your bluetooth chipset, your GPS 
chipset, your WLAN chipset, your printer, your modem?

GSM is a closed market, there is only a handfull of certified stacks available 
and these are considered mission critical trade secret -- whether we like 
that or not. Until the forseeable future, I don't see the powers allowing any 
open GSM stack (apart from the fact that such a thing doesn't exist) to be 
allowed to operate in public networks.
