what's not functional?

Hi All,

I've just joined the list, but I've been following openmoko off and on, 
at a distance, for several months now, maybe it's been a year or so.  
Over time, I've heard of various things that did or didn't work, how 
useful/successful the phone is for everyday use, etc.  At this point, I 
revisit the site and I find that its potentially viable at least as a 
phone I can use on a day-to-day basis, provided I charge it frequently, 
right?  I am familiar with the gumstix.com platform for doing some 
non-phone embedded stuff, but now I've got some projects that really 
require using an honest-to-goodness phone.

Since it seems that openmoko has evolved quite a bit over the last year, 
it seems more appropriate to ask "what *doesn't* work" rather than "what 
*does* work".  It seems that things are substantially developed, 
although of course not perfect.  If I buy a devel kit, what can I expect 
to *not* work, or work marginally?
