Comment The problems were they didn't play fair (Score 1) 219

Some of the problems with OpenMoko is the way they failed to fulfilled the development orders. I ordered the development models (Neo 1973) twice and I never got my order processed. Later orders from other people were fulfilled. The end result is that developers didn't get a chance to solve the big problems with the phone, and that is reflected in the second version (FreeRunner), and the problems with it were glaring. Even doing something simple like installing a new kernel is a process filled with errors and problems. Trying to do development in those conditions is futile. WIth the arrival of Android, we have moved all development to that platform, that holds a lot of promise for what we want to do.
