Hi<br><br>I have some little questions: <br>- how hard will it be possible to port maemo apps to OpenMoko (if possible)?<br>- what about package management? apt-get like mecanism? Do you consider using mkezx ? An official binary repository?...
<br>- will the AP's filesystem be read-write ?<br>- already thought of using handsignature for biometric identification? I don't know if there are any free software available, i saw a prototype last year on a pda, and it works very well. PIN codes are old-fashioned ;)
<br>- although a lot of people didn't realize it, apple's iPhone killer feature is really the multitouch screen, which IMHO is the key component to all these physical-model-based interface effects and novel input types; is it certain that the first neo can't have such a screen?
<br>- about accelerometer questions, i saw a cellphone videogame that used the phone camera to detect movement, rotation.... How hard would it be to add a standard camera on the neo (1 MP max)? In terms of price and technical feasability? I'm not sure it's more expensive than a full-features accelerometer, is it?
<br>- i really think a universal infrared remote feature would be a killer app (with integration of tv programs); domotics is a great area, but is still very expensive; what about porting X10 control apps to the neo? :) There are tons of great apps feasible : perfect waker, playing music, lighting lights gradually on etc...
<br>- i don't get how a 2.5 G GSM is not EDGE: i thought 2.5 G was EDGE... Could please anybody clarify that?<br>- i'd like to get an opinion of somebody who actually owns (or sam) a neo about the lcd screen. Sooo small, and such a huge resolution... Please let us dream :) Is suitable for text reading?
<br>- could the neo's usb port be used for usb gadgets? The more important would be mechanical input devices ( mini keyboards )<br>- already considered an usb multi I/O companion device? Something like <a href="http://www.pcinpact.com/actu/news/34516-replicateur-port-USB.htm">
http://www.pcinpact.com/actu/news/34516-replicateur-port-USB.htm</a> (sorry, it's in french) This thing features a VGA/DVI connectivity, ethernet, ... If the neo had a small sized extension device, allowing external vga connectivity, it would be awesome... And serve as a dock station.
<br>- what about RFID reader/writer, or simply a tag?<br><br>I'm sorry if some of these questions were already discussed.<br><br>Anyway, openmoko is a great promising project, i'm waiting for it's availability ! I hope there will be enough devices for us to buy when it's ready for prime time...
