Will... will... will...

The sad thing about this case is that it's just another case of "will... will... will..." without any "is... is... is..." It'll be 2009 or later before anything comes out of this. In the mean-time, i sincerely hope that OpenMoko can make enough inroads to hinder Nokia's PR stunt. Symbian is a real and working product. To buy it and say we "will" make it open source (in 2009, according to the article i read)... it just pisses me off. Show me the code, not the marketing gimicks.
