I would enjoy nothing more than to upgrade my phone with the OpenMoko phone, but the ability to start working on mobile Mono applications on it as well would be nice, not that the Nokia's aren't nice, but they're not as open :-P

Yes, I'm working on the OpenEmbedded recipes for Mono that will be
used to generate the mono packages.  Things are not working yet, but
hopefully will be at some point.  Mono runs fine on my n770 tablet,
but still does some strange things on OE based distros.  I sent an
email to the list yesterday, but for some reason it appears to have
been lost -- I'll send again shortly.

Help is quite welcome :-)
