Review: Trolltech Qtopia Greenphone, SDK

LinuxLookup reviews the Qtopia Greenphone, and concludes: Trolltech is attempting to ‘ride on the shoulders’ of such a community, hoping that their new platform will take off. Some of the steps they are taking are very good, such as providing a downloadable Community SDK (with licensing limitation), so that a budding software developer can write and test code without having to invest the whopping USD 700 for the hardware. In my opinion, the platform definitely has potential, but as far as being a truly hacker friendly device, I think the above license agreement says it all.” Elsewhere, Penang is readying a Linux-based dual-mode WiFi GSM/GPRS phone.
