The Tux Phone.


There’s these geeks, see, and they’re fed up with the current mobile phone scene. So they’re going to make a Linux mobile phone. A Tux Phone, if you will. Open source ringtones? Who knows.

 For a programmer, this is a dream come true. Here’s the entire telephone presented to me as a data object. I literally write to and read from a file to run the entire phone if I’m programming in linux. The GM862’s the core of the phone, the thing that actually lets you communicate to the GSM and GPRS networks. They even have one that has an embedded Python interpreter. Seriously slick. But, I want a phone with features to rival my V3. So, I want a fairly powerful controller.
