Linux based Qtopia Greenphone

Well, I’m really hoping this takes off – it’s 2006 and the “advanced” phones are still pretty crummy in one way or another – Trolltech has just announced a new GSM/GPRS Linux based phone platform / SDK – “Qtopia Greenphone is a Linux mobile development device open for unlimited software innovation. Offered as part of the Greenphone SDK, it makes Linux-based applications easier to build and faster to bring to market. This powerful GSM/GPRS device provides the perfect platform for creation, testing and demonstration of new mobile technology services and ships loaded with Qtopia Phone Edition.” [via] – Link.

    This is impressive! Can I get that in black?

    With no impressive Linux phones, a lot of Linux press is still focused on the Nokia 770 which is neither a phone nor PDA, but has a lot of potential and an active development community.

    Pricing came out today, $195 for the license for the dev kit, $695 for the phone (aka, development platform). WTF?
