Running free, an OpenMoko short report
On Wednesday I finally received my OpenMoko Freerunner, the smart phone every open source guy is dreaming of. I don't want to rant a lot about it, but just give you a rough overview on my impressions.
So, last night I proposed a package called PEAR::SMS, which allows the developer to send and recieve SMS trhough a connected cellular device. As backend the *nix/Windows tool Gammu is used. Gammu supports variouse cellphones (most Nokia and Siemens), as well als internal GSM devices, over several connection methods (eg. serial, irda, bluetooth).
So, I called for votes on Net_SMS today. As I will open my new website to public in several minutes, is here the link to it's project website.
Initial release on Image_Tools
Today I got several emails on the release of Image_Text and why there is no official release available on Image_Tools, because Image_Text depends on it.
