Does anyone know if there are any plans for a Dual Band GSM openmoko phone? It'd be nice to have an 850/900 phone for use in the States or in Europe. it would neither in the us nor in europe work sufficently -- both use 1800 resp 1900, too. so the phone would stop working ever now and

It works. Where I used to get the multitap-pad I now get the matchbox keyboard. It's not as high so you get to see more of the app, but the keys are smaller so harder to hit without a stylus. It seems to offer a full keyboard, including Esc, Tab, Ctrl, Alt and cursor keys. could you offer
