Don't get me wrong (I love my FR)
but when I bought it (preordered it very soon) it was still marketed
as a working phone, not a developper phone. Not only on openmoko.com,
but also on openmoko.org. (And yes I informed myself very good, I read
almost every mail).

But that is the problem, it still can't make reliable phone calls
(echo has been partly fixed, gsm buzzing sound still around and I
havent tested the latest image but until recently the calypso chip
keeps re-registering). I have tried everything a thousand times,
2007.2, ASU, 2008.8, 2008.9, FDOM, FSO, Qtopia... and never have
gotten a "working phone"

a lot of problems like thelimited bus (glamo's fault) were told, but
everything you could read said it would be a working phone

I vote in favour of editing openmoko.com, at least for now
