Matthew Garret is blogging about the Linux based Palm Pre
I like a lot what I read there. Linux Kernel, OpenEmbedded, dbus based IPC, OMAP
SoC, root on SD and more. I would design it mostly the same way. Wait, I'm missing 300
develoeprs and 300 Millions vanture capital here. To bad.
Really waiting for the kernel sources. It is using a MSM6xxx based modem for
CDMA and I would bet just the brother, perhaps MSM6281 like the Samsung Omnia,
for the GSM variant. As I'm hacking on the Omnia right know I would of cours be
interested in a kernel driver to drive the modem. On the Omnia it is connected
via a dual port ram chip that interfaces to the PXA312 on the other side.
This also is kinda similar to the MSM7k SoC's that are used in the available
Android phones. Just that AP, ram and BP are in the same chip here.
And the driver for the CDMA modem should also be pretty similar to the GSM
variant. That gives me a little hope that maybe a driver for such a dual port
ram setup will be in the Palm Pre kernel sources. Let me know if you have

As we know, the Neo USB port can be both a device and a host port. The earlier device, the Neo 1973, could not provide power in host mode. The mass production version, the Neo Freerunner, can provide a limited amount of power in host mode. For devices requiring more ...
Kevin Dean, who has been reviewing daily builds for the Neo 1973, has recently received a Neo Freerunner, and now will be reviewing the software for this Neo. His first review includes photographs.
I received my Openmoko Freerunner sample this morning via DHL, and like I did with the Neo1973, ...
What we call the "u-blox chip" is actually the ATR0635 ANTARIS 4 GPS chip manufactured by u-blox .
Joseph Reeves of Oxford Archeology asked if we had any code to illustrate the binary protocol used to communicate with this device. Thanks to Andy, Roh, and Daniel, we have the following starting ...
I'd like to bring to your attention an interesting project built around the Freerunner.
Joseph Reeves at Oxford Archeology is developing a unit to be used by archaeologists while in the field. Joseph writes:
One of the main attractions of the FreeRunner was that it would fit our needs ...

USB Charging from a wide range of input voltages
Joseph Reeves of Oxford Archeology is exploring ways of charging the Freerunner in the field. He has located a portable USB charging solar panel, but observes that the output voltage from the solar panel is sometimes outside of the voltage range the ...
Openmoko has been working on some major changes to the software, and you can now take a peak at a very early alpha release.
In the words of Steve; "... this is to give people a sense of the direction, a glimpse of the future and not meant ( at this ...
Q: What will be the price of the Neo FreeRunner?
A: $399 USD.
Q: What components are included?
A: We have not yet decided.
Q: What are the volume discount details?
A: We will sell a "10Pack", which is a package of 10 phones, for which we will charge $369 USD per phone. Note this ...
So much going on in the past couple of weeks:
1. Freerunner is now shipping, although I doubt that anyone reading this blog doesn't know this already. Buy yours at www.openmoko.com, join a group purchase to save on shipping and get a better price, or check out our growing list of ...
When you connect your Neo 1973 to your Linux computer via a USB cable, most modern Linux distributions automatically configure the Ethernet-over-USB interface.
What doesn't always get set properly is the routing to and from the Neo, and proper masquerading of traffic from the Neo to the Internet.
I think my setup ...
Droid ???????????????? Android ??????????????????????????????????????????????? freerunner ????????????????????????????
I finally got bothered enough to fix the /etc/network/interfaces problem on my Ubuntu notebook. The problem is that when my neo got connected, I want to do some automatic setup. On Debian lenny, it's quite easy:
iface usb0 inet static
NOTE: The illume info is outdated now. Just opkg install illume-theme-illume and modify /etc/enlightenment/default-profile to get the wrench and qwerty buttons.
I used the Om2008.8-update as the base image, then modify it for daily usage.
First of all I would like to use the illume default keyboard instead of the qtopia ...
Well I did would have prefered one that ran on my primary webpage talpa.dk but this was faster to setup.
Why I would want one you ask?
Well as a quick way of writing down notes/hints and to inform the world of the progress of my software project, altleast the part of ...
ho rilasciato una versione embrionalissima, ma relativamente funzionante, di Coypu, una comoda utility per mandare file dall'openmoko verso altri device bluetooth.
Appena si lancia il programma lui ci chiede subito qual'e' il file da inviare. questa soluzione un po' posticcia l'ho adottata per fare prima, facendo cosi' poi non devo impazzire ...
Per l'uscita di windows vista la microsoft aveva sparso per le grandi citta' dei cartelloni pubblicitari al cui interno c'era anche un dispositivo bluetooth che inviava dei file. Sul cartellone c'era proprio scritto di accere il bluetooth del proprio cellulare per ricevere la pubblicita'.

Ho aggiornato gtkaddpoi con la funzione per esportare un POI dentro i bookmark di Navit.
Navit si tiene i bookmark in ~/.navit/bookmark.txt in questo formato

in cui l'unica particolarita' e' mettere prima la longitudine e poi la latidudine, e non viceversa come avviene di solito.
