I am still searching for my dream smartphone which has to be feature rich, open source and hackable, touchscreen, syncs my data with software of my choice and being lightweight. I like the IPhone as an independent developer (and you can expect a game from me this year) but its far from being open. The Open Moko Freerunner is the closest match at the moment but sort of unfinished, it lacks some polish and sometimes I just want to use a cellphone to make a call. The Google Android Phone is Linux based like the Moko but closly tied to Googles services, and do we trust them :) ? At the moment the Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona and lot of manufacturers present new gadgets, a second Android Google phone is announced and looks promising.
Everything will be clearer when they release their SDK and today they started with the announcement of a forthcomming book they done together with O'Reilley and the release of the first chapter for free. Unfortuanally this chapter didn't reveal much as I hoped so we have to wait and I continue using my old Samsung D500...
