OPENMOKO:
Broadband PC Rival

Mobile phones, currently closed and self limited, will rival broadband computers. When based on Open standards, they will deliver ubiquitous computing and vanish.

Ubiquitous computing means more than computing wherever you wander: It means knowing the locale, weaving seamlessly into the local fabric, and vanishing.

Devices disappear when developers have unrestricted access to hardware.

Openmoko's Neo gives you this control for the first time.
"The most profound technologies
are those that disappear. They weave
themselves into the fabric of everyday life
until they are indistinguishable from it."
