Android Unlocked

Rogers announcement of the coming HTC devices running Android has sure made a splash on the web! If you don’t mind the contract it’s likely a good smart phone option too. It’s not the first Android phone in Canada though.

Koolu already offers Freerunner A7s running Android for $399. No contract, no lock-in.

As a happy FOSS user and advocate of FOSS philosophy I find OpenMoko’s (openmoko.com and openmoko.org) foray into open hardware exciting. I bought a Freerunner as soon as they became available and have played around with a few different distributions on it including OM2007, Debian and QT Extended. Currently it’s running OM2008.

Recent Android hype has piqued my curiosity, so I’ll flash Android to my Freerunner this weekend sometime and will post my experience with it here.
