Once freerunner(openmoko) platform matures, we can get rid of all these stupid platforms.
Its too much. In future we will have phones like this, going by the trends.
One phone says you can sms only if you hold your ears from under your legs.
Other says you can make a call only if you are naked
Hopefully with Symbian opening up, and openmoko lapping at their heels, things are going to get better for the end user

There are a fair bit of criticisms of the G1 handset, which might be solved by a newer handset. But since there is only the G1 now, we have to look at that only. I have been gathering info about that and will be posting that later.
