For people interested in what's happening at OpenMoko, Harald Welte's occasional account is fascinating, if not exactly definitive: http://gnumonks.org/~laforge/weblog/. The short story is that it's very, very hard to start up anything in Taiwan, without (I assume) direct government / military / mafia backing. (Taiwan is routinely rated among the most corrupt places in the world.)
Here's hoping Harald gets his health back soon.
