I'm sure u can get around the enter name and password thing by giving
control directly to mission control, via telepathy, and local link
xmpp, or anonymous xmpp if u wanna use a xmpp server... but seems like
generally telepathising the openmoko  would be fun and make sense for
all its comm capabilities. Someone built a pretty decent openmoko
chat/voip/video client for the openmoko using python bindings, or was
ir for

Hhmm, actually looking a bit  at the openmoko apps, it seems there is
alreafy a ton of telepathy based stuff for it,Just out of
curiosity.... people I've spoken to all said android based phones are
nicer to hack on than freerunner/maemo... What's you're opinion. If
tou were forced to use just one platform.... which would u chooose. I
wanna get something to play/hack on, but I'm unsure what I should go

kind regards,
Daifd Van Assche
