I only wonder how long it will take for 10 companies to come up with a standard that they all agree upon. 2005-11-14 9:56 pm gtadaPfft. If Motorola is involved, I have little faith. Their Linux phones right now have shitty support, no native SDK that’s publicly available, and all of the fun stuff is locked away.Here’s what I mean: I have an A780, and I was hoping to write a Bluetooth remote control application. However, Motorola decided not to support JSR-82. Sweet. GPS is also available on the phone, but that API is also suprisingly unavailable. Awesome.Next phone I buy will be either Symbian or Windows Mobile.
