Apple Cracks Down On iPhone Unlockers

Rac3r5 iPhone OS (565 comments)

I was just wondering if it is possible to install the iPhone OS on another phone? When it comes down to it, it seems that the main selling point of the iPhone is the OS. I currently use WindowsMobile and hate it :(

Rac3r5 writes "I came across this news release via: Linux Devices. "Portola Valley, Calif., July 10, 2007 — Gumstix, Inc, today announced its integrated, open source cellular communications platform: the Goliath(TM)[PDF] line of expansion boards. The Goliath-vx board provides GPRS/EDGE function while the Goliath-GPS-vx board combines GPRS/EDGE and GPS. Each Goliath board attaches to a gumstix(TM) motherboard (verdex only) using a 60-pin connector and includes audio, LCD, touch screen, USB host, 3D-accelerometer, and battery management. General availability is planned for late July and the company will begin taking pre-orders at gumstix.com starting on 16 July."

I have been interested in designing my own cell phone for a while now and this seems like an interesting opportunity. Do any /.'ers know of any online DIY club that is working on designing their own cell phone? This seems like a good combination for OpenMoko"
