Answer:Openmoko is an effort to make mobile phones completely free (as in freedom). It runs a Linux based OS and even its hardware is open sourced. The phone in 1, is FIC’s neo1973, the first Openmoko phone. Details below..

1. Openmoko neo1973
2. Martin Cooper ( Inventor of the mobile phone )

The name neo1973 was chosen because Martin Cooper
made the first ever phone call using a mobile device in 1973.

  13. That is the JavaFX phone and that is Dr.Martin Cooper with the worlds first (analog) mobile phone the DynaTAC.

    The JavaFX will work on a mobile phone OS and platform by Sun who acquired SavaJe who were initially working on it. This is supposed to be a competitor to Google’s Android.

    But the connect … damn what is the connect??!!

    Any cookies for atleast identifying the pictures?


  14. well the only thing I found was that the JavaFX (and apps on it) is going to make other phones look like a DynaTAC in comparision.
