Well, from the looks of the screenshots, Freerunners will ship without a
GUI email program or web browser. (Is that right?) If so, I'd think
that everyone who can contribute to a software update that includes
those apps should. They seem fairly critical to me for any smartphone.
I would also rate getting the Glamo further figured out so that it will
do video playback as well as it's able is important.
Note: many people on this list don't care at all about video. I
understand that. However, I'm thinking more of public perception. If
Slashdot/Engadget/Gizmodo etc. read reviews of the device that say, as
shipped, it can't do email, web browsing, or video playback, then a lot
of people will simply ignore Openmoko for good. It would be better for
the community if it instead attracted as many people as possible. It's
hard to overcome a bad first impression, but if some important software
updates become available within a month or two, there will still be a
chance to bring people around.
