There is a cheap Android smartphone on the market
Processor: Samsung S3C2448 400Mhz
·Operating system: Google Android
·Network: GSM900/DCS1800 or GSM850/DCS1900, GPRS Class 10
·Display: 2.8” TFT-LCD with QVGA (320x240) flat touch-sensitive screen
·Camera: 2.0-mega-piexel CMOS
·Memory: 128MB(ROM), 128MB(RAM), 1GB microSD? memory card(up to 8GB)
·Connectivity: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g
at least it is told to be readily usable phone and it costs much less than
$500 that FreeRunner would cost in Russia :-)
unbranded it seems to be Beyond-Radio.com one
the problem is that chinese cheap goods comes with no after-sale support,
no updates, etc
so if unofficial self-contained firmware project can be made - the phone
definetly is interesting to buy
If not, if "take what we made and bear with it" - then it is not
insteresting thing, though it's a pity
Alas, SciPhones sales manager knows nothign about software and developers
(or at least are ordered to tell so)
Alas, Beyond-Radio e-mail is dead
And here comes the surprise -
Some code is taken/derives from neo1973
What might it seems ?
* the person, who ported Android onto that phone was one of Moko hackers
and put his experience with Moko code inside ? Maybe you know him ?
* that is common case of code exchanges between Android and Moko and
means nothing ?
* that phone just has [mostly] the same hardware as Neo1973 ?
I wonder if you know any clues to unbox the firmware (currently some
bootloaders told to work, some not, so at least there are sailing the
phone with two different versions of firmware) and easier make custom
android upgrades (bootlloader, drivers, upgrade/recovery methods).
I wonder if that phone may potentialyl be some fun for you to port
OpenMoko to :-)
Sorry, for those, to whome this post would be just spam :-(
