I think the press didn't understand the intention of Sean Moss-Pultz at Open
Expo. If I google openmoko I met many wrong topics:
The pages are in german but the messages are:
Openmoko stops development of free smartphones.
Linux smartphone openmoko failed
Project Freerunner will not be continued
on chip.de (03.04.2009) they even say:
"after Neo 1973 there will be no more Openmoko smartphone", they even claim to
know Plan B is a navigation system
It's really annoying to read this. But I am happy to see that where it was
possible the community has commented the articles. Anyway it doesn't put a
good light on Openmoko.
