OpenMoko’s project is the most open and the most consumer-friendly. OpenMoko is a spin-off of Taiwanese computer giant First International Computer (FIC), though OpenMoko head Sean Moss-Pultz said the project will be a “neutral, nonthreatening base” for phone manufacturers to get GPLed code which can be freely shared and re-used.

OpenMoko starts with a Linux 2.6 kernel, on top of which OpenMoko has layered an application framework, interface layer, and a few basic programs, including a dialer, address book, and SMS/MMS message application. OpenMoko’s application framework and application manager are the key: they let developers design for a mobile-phone platform and let users easily find and download new applications for their phone.
