PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hi-Mobile.net sent us in an unlocked iPhone for testing. We used the iPhone for almost a month now and it's time to write an editorial-type article on the... unlockiness of it all.

Well, for you (as for many other GNOME users) that might be correct, as you say:

To me, these interfaces are just arcane now.

But 1) building a pretty UI on top of a working and powerfull embedded platform is way easier than getting the base stuff working and
2) there are geeks like me who have no problem with whatever interface a device has, as long as it gives access to the FEATURES (and maybe is customizable) in there (heck, give me a shell on my phone and a tiny keyboard ;) ..
So openmoko might seem a joke to you now, but at the moment it is officially 'for geeks only' anyways..
I'm pretty sure though within a year there will be at least one openmoko device which makes GNOME users happy aswell. And has a standard headphone jack, too.
