Little things that matter in language design
Intel and Nokia announce open source telephony project (oFono)

FSO already some overlap with telepathy (I wouldn't say NiH as a big percentage of FSO is gsm-specific which does not exist in telepathy), so it would also be interesting to hear how telepathy and oFone compare/overlap/co-operate.

The next-generation Internet Tablets will finally have GSM/3G capability, so my guess would be that oFono is meant specifically for that purpose: giving Maemo in particular (and GNOME Mobile in general) a cellular stack that integrates well with other standard components.

At a push, it may also support the headset-less "speaker phone" mode you can currently use with VoIP, or even sideways-holding-to-head.
I'd be surprised to see the Maemo 5 device(s) marketed as phones, and sold through normal mobile contracts though.
