Purpose

MokoForesight was an independent hardware lab inside Openmoko to scout, analyze, and write proof-of-concept drivers for new open source chips/modules. The lab has since been shut down, this page documents research done by the lab.

Wavecom WMP100 AT docs open, ability to program new AT commands for everyone with a "free"(ly available) SDK. Order quantity? Component is fine, but only supports Class10 GPRS unfortunately (Shawn 2008-08-11) No idea, see wavecom.com (sort of)
Wavecom Q26 Ultra same as wmp100 Order quantity? GPRS cl10, EDGE cl10, WCDMA, but thick (40x32x6.55mm) No idea, see wavecom's website
UC864 (3.5G modem) Detailed documentation on Web. Can get even for more documentation from reseller. Any Qty is good. Price depends strongly on the qty. First impression is good. UC864G includes all known bands and GPS receiver (saves more space & complications) UMTS/HSDPA
