Commercial developers embrace OpenMoko
Author: JT Smith
Development of the first commercial application for the OpenMoko is apparently getting underway. The application handles automatic logging into commercial Wi-Fi networks (like Starbucks) and is from Devicescape. The application seems like a good fit given the lack of 3G & slow GPRS in the FreeRunner. Are more commercial applications going to move to the OpenMoko platform because of its open platform? Is the restrictiveness of other platforms help push applications to the OpenMoko?
