- OpenMoko is not only software, it's human being working on a hardware 
+ firmware + software.

Android or qtopia appears to me as "piece of software" for telephony 
while openmoko and neo1973 seems to be more "close one another".

- It Seems to be more human-sized that google.
- I hate java :-)
- I prefers c to c++ ;-)
- it is a debian spirit.
- I really appreciated gpl (and less asl)

- it was first discovered (more than 1 year)
- Google begins to be "to much" (tomorrow's microsoft)

I do for nokia N810 too.
