OpenMoko is the GNU/Linux distribution that runs on the free phone Neo
Freerunner from FIC. It is completely Free Software. Being able to
completely control a cell phone gives new posibillities that people
only dreamed of.
Have you ever had a mobile phone where you have been
annoyed by some of the functionality and thought: "If only I had the
source code I could have fixed this annoying thing"? Then you are not
alone. The phone Neo Freerunner from FIC runs a completely free
operating system. Because it is free it is possible to try out completely
new ideas - even ideas that the phone companies make no money from.
The presentation will be about the possibilities and how you can take
part in this revolution.
