Asterisk on Openmoko

I did not argued here that everyone must keep running in their openmoko.

I just want to know the problems what they are facing when they run
asterisk in their openmoko. (since I don't have the physical phone).

Looks like the discussion going crazy without understanding the needs.

Based upon the theory of your experience ( I really don't know whether
you all have the physical device) looks like openmoko will cry to run
asterisk. Can anyone having the Neo1973 can confirm this?
