Openmoko is a usable phone (if you're geek), graphics speed is not 
related to usability (but to eye-candy) as far as I know : most of us 
used slower computers in the past, but still we had graphical and usable 

Designing hardware is not designing software. This lack of graphical 
bandwidth is a failure, but a failure does not mean Openmoko is an evil 
company that fooled geeks to make lots of $$$.

For trying to free the phone we should support them, not blame them 
because of this problem.

I call 'fud' upon your words.
