from this month's linux format magazine, duscussing the software that the 
'phone will come with:

"One ommission [sic], which has been removed for 'security reasons' is 
the GTalk application, which would have given users free VoIP facilities 
over a Wi-Fi connection"  (LXF111, p.7).

i'd say that was looking pretty bleak on the device-openness front. 
yaaaay openmoko.  shame the article didn't mention them.
