  There are two different software loads.

  Out of the box you should have Openhand Apps running on GTK.

  That is the BASE functionality. dialer, sms, contacts.

  The future software stack is available from Michael. Entirely different

I'm using whatever software was installed on the phone, which I 
understand to be the ASU stack -- all that's installed on the phone is a 
dialer, SMS application, terminal application, a screenshot capture and 
contact list manager.

When you hold the power button for a few seconds, you see a menu where 
you can turn on/off the GSM modem (default: on), GPS (default: off), 
bluetooth (default: off), wifi (default: on), then a drop-down list of 
three power settings:
- no power saving at all
- dim without locking (which as I understand locks it anyway)
- dim with locking
