 I agree but OpenMoko cannot come to users on 11.09 with buggy software,
especially with software that should be 'killer app'. Don't you think so? I
am also a devloper and I would like to help as much as I can - even if on
11.03 I buy phone with 'not mature' applications. My point is developers
should focus on 'killer apps' and only after start implementing some hackish
features like "ultrasound comminication" mentioned on wiki :-)

 I understand your point but I would expect from phone with GPS is at
leastto be able to load some map and hit wilderness on my bike. I can even
pay for the map ;-) It would be nice if all features of GPS would be
available in OpenMoko.
