There certainly is a lot that they can salvage from the openmoko project software-wise.
Didn't they eventually produce some software variations that included GSM/phone-related items that would be controlled via dbus? Stuff that could be integrated into the Gnome desktop in a sort of modern desktop services manner?
Because, if so, then it should be very interesting to anybody who would seek to add Cell Phone-like functionality to Netbooks or MID devices. Maybe the Telapathy folks or the Moblin folks would be interested?
