Some time around the millenium cell phone UIs became atrociously bad. I have tried Nokia, Moto, and Siemens and all of them are slooow to respond, have extremely poorly thought out menus, and just don't come near the utility that the hardware should allow.
This situation reminds me of my Archos. As shipped, it was an utter piece of garbage. Along came the RockBox project and turned it into a fantastic MP3 player. All it took was decent firmware.
Can open source save the cell phone industry in the same way? I'll be watching this project closely.
