Qt Trolltech has discontinued its Linux-based 'Greenphone' development platform. Touted upon its introduction as the first Linux-based mobile phone with user-modifiable firmware, the device will be superseded by various third-party products, including not only open phones, but also portable media players, navigation devices, and home automation equipment, the company says.

Proprietary OS, no SDK, no instructions how to flash, no open specs for the hardware. And most of all, no time to spend two years re-engineering a device that will be obsolete by then ;)
