IMO GTA04 now has all of this. I am not using the phone very intensively - just few calls/SMS per day, but so far this works with QtMoko good. > No bevel around the screen. Bevel is not bad - it protects the screen. The problem with freerunner's case is that the bevel it too steep near the screen edges. I think the shapeways made case/front part has this fixed. > First the phone with a working kernel, drivers etc. This will give the > basis for whatever software on top of it. The 3.2 kernel is perfectly stable and has all features needed for normal phone. I have never had any problem with this kernel. Yes, battery life in suspend can be better, but let's hope this can be solved. > Maybe a middle point, because it might be linked to hardware support, is > a fluid interface.

I dont have any recent videos to show this, only this old video running 2.6.32 kernel from slow class 2 SD card: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgZzxmHzWtg > Maybe this could be some kind of recommended/official distribution for > the hardware.

I think GTA04 telephony on SHR and Android are not yet finished, but it should not be hard to do it. I hope there will be soon stable SHR and Android images so that you can choose what fits you best.
