I gave an introductory talk on the OpenMoko project at the Department of Astronomy, Osmania University, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh on Sunday, October 28, 2007.

The audience were introduced to the Neo1973 device and its accessories. The project documentation website was shown. The recommended flavor for working on OpenMoko is Debian or Debian-based distributions like Ubuntu.

The different methods of installation - online and through were mentioned. SSH into the device, and exporting the user interface were demonstrated. Software emulation through QEMU was also shown. Building a simple “Hello World” application was explained using autotools, Makefile and the ipk, bitbake packaging system. Audio and video were tested on the device. The next version of Neo and Openmoko is expected to have better hardware and more features.
