Mot A1200

Lol, spend a big chunk of a day looking for a Linux based cell in India.. ended up with an Intel Xscale based Motorola A1200... runs a mv 2.4 kernel.. the kernel is posted here:

". I am heart broken.. not even a list to discuss the kernel and hack it up :( - blame it on me being lazy. interesting to read this set of cries:

I bet Nokia does way better with the maemo... hackers.. next time choose nokia ;)

Wish mot had put up a 2.6 based kernel at least.. :(.. and worst, no tools at to compile, hack arnd with the phone.. :( mebbe i have'nt spend enough time screwing arnd with it.. it plays awesome real player movies, good audio (first time i saw a 5 pin headset :D). Interestingly, i recently saw my friend's Symbian Series 60 based phone which uses ABCD processor.. and boy, it gives worse quality o/p compared to my A1200 (which by the way has an awesome battery life-wish i'd see it's powermanagement code )..
