I agree with that, but it might good to get it integrated with OpenMoko (or
at least plan to), because certainly a more powerful platform than the
Neo1973 will come along that takes advantage of OpenMoko. It would be nice
to be ready.
However, as you point out in the snipped portions of the message, the effort
to do this port is unknown.
Additionally, I think JME is more likely to be of use to propective service
providers and manufacturers thinking of using OpenMoko. There are good
existing ports of ME around that we can work with.
So anyway, I agree that phoneMe (is that pronounce fone-me or foneem?) is
the way to go first. But I'd like us to keep an eye out for opportunities
to move up to JSE.
