Hi Clare, thanks for your efforts :) The next neovento version will include a small configuration program which will allow you to switch between the keyboard layouts. The numpad issue is something we could not solve. With the most recent matchbox keyboard you could use different layouts on

What about first building a decent keyboard with normal keys and then dream about triangular keys glory? Such a triangular keyboard uses lots of space, maybe twice the space of a normal keyboard. That's certainly not useful on the small freerunner screen which is also cramped by the casing frame

Substitute batteries

OK, I have a few Nokia batteries laying around, BL-5c and BL-6c, and desktop chargers. They power the Freerunner fine, and seem to charge when they're in the FR plugged in. But the Freerunner doesn't know what to do with them apart from that, presumably since they lack the Openmoko coulomb

Is 'next batch of Freerunners' referring to further units destined for developers and enthusiasts, or units targeting consumers? For the former: I'd think OM2008.08, 'opkg upgrade'd past a few irritations, with developer-friendly keyboard (g) and Terminal. These people should easily be up to the
