I want freedom.  I want a phone that runs 100% free software, including
any firmware for component devices and also including firmware running
on the baseband processor.  I want the same freedom for the hardware.

The openmoko-community and openphoenux-community mailing lists are
places where I expect like-minded people will congregate.

Even though I believe the GTA04 product from Golden Delicious is not
viable, I don't expect it will be the last effort to produce a free
phone.  Indeed, if Golden Delicious release the source files for the
board, the GTA04 design could form a base for the development of the
next effort.  I hope this will happen.

I hope that by participating in the discussion I can convince others to
let go of the GTA04 product and embrace a broader, freer vision of a
community that produces its own phone designs collaboratively.  I
believe this change will enable movement forward, bringing us closer to
viable products and ultimately closer to freedom.
