about progress in creating an open GSM mobile telephone protocol implementation on his blog.
"So, just to be clear on this: Neither OpenEZX, nor gnufiish nor Openmoko were ever about writing Free Software for the GSM baseband processor, i.e. the beast that exchanges messages with the actual GSM operator network. But this is what we're working on right now.
It's about time, don't you agree? after 19 years of only proprietary software on the baseband chips in billions of phones, it is more than time for bringing the shining light of Freedom into this area of computing.
