Although not yet announced, this new forum is affiliated with MobiLiberty.com, a new Libervis Network site about Free Software and Standards powered mobile devices.

It is currently quite minimal and the future for it is quite open ended. In this thread you are invited to post questions and suggestions that you may have regarding that site. If you have a good idea for what we could do with that site, feel free to post it below.

Thank you

here is a suggestion,

here is a suggestion, create individual portals for the users. (eg. page formatting for the PSP, Nokia E series, etc. so the site can be displayed properly for the devices). the user can then create a preferences page which will have their devices listed (private information if need be) and depending on the device, the pages would be properly formatted when they use their devices to get to the site.

also, on the same note, if not the entire site, then at least the RSS pages. for example, the PSP now supports RSS feeds, so i can connect it to my network, click on RSS Feeds and get all the news in a properly formatted page.

This was an old topic,

This was an old topic, dated 2007-04-22 (22nd April 2007), started when mobiliberty.com was just getting started. You must've seen it as new because I updated it to make it not be a sticky anymore (hence the "updated" sign you probably saw on it instead of "new").

After a year, OpenMoko failed to attract mainstream following and the open mobile industry is only now getting started. Even so, things are going slow. While the announcement of Symbian OS getting freed is great, it'll take years before we actually see real results of that. Meanwhile lots can happen, like the alleged merge of Android and Symbian. Bottom line is, mobiliberty.com was made to take advantage of an opportunity which didn't actually happen and is therefore largely a failed project.

So my plan is to just turn it into a static page with an overview of GNU/Linux powered mobile phones, UMPCs (mini laptops) and maybe portable music players where the condition is that you are able and allowed to replace an OS and install or remove programs.

But this forum still remains for support of freedomware on mobile devices, so the link between mobiliberty and it is still relevant. It's just that it's no longer "new". Smiling

Still, that's a nice suggestion and if mobiliberty is ever to be turned back into a full scale site it's something to take into account. Smiling

Thank you
