QTopia phone edition

While trolltech tries to paint themselves as big friends of opensource (and they mostly are)... they will not tell you that QTopia phone edition is not available under opensource license. Actually, you don't get to see the source code unless you pay $BIGNUM of money... and their web is confusing so it took me hour-or-so trying to figure that out.

So you were warned... and if you get their greenphone... it may be nice toy, but you are not getting sources for important parts. I guess I should start developing user interface based on phone keypad... having sx1 running linux is useless if you can only use it by telneting in it..
