And oddly enough, it seems like the guy is pro-open source from his blog. I guess it is the FP "journalist" misquoted him to satisify his own prejudices.
Obviously this is most likely the end of an era in piracy, but the pirate bay feels otherwise. If the new owners will screw around with the site, nobody will keep using it. That's the biggest insurance one can have that the site will be run in the way that we all want to. And — you can now not only share files but shares with people. Everybody can indeed be the owner of The Pirate Bay now. That's awesome and will take the heat of us.
Of course, its only a matter of time before the new owners buckle to political pressure and filter the site of "copyrighted" material. I believe the phrase is "take the money and run"."
Yeah, it won't go well in European markets without a camera. Even business customers expect a camera on their phone these days. No EDGE or 3G is also serious flaw.
Like somebody else said: it's a PDA with some phone features.
I recommended people interested in an open source phone to ask Nokia when they will have one ready. Linux isn't made for mobile phones, Symbian is, and Symbian will be released as open source soon. If(when) I can hack the Symbian software on my E65 I'll have a top notch smartphone. Without camera, EDGE and 3G, the Neo Freerunner will never be a top notch smartphone.
