I have a Nokia 9500. It has fax capability, which I sometimes use. The Nokia E90, as far as I know, does not incorporate fax. This leaves me to a certain extent in a Nokia cul-de-sac. Fax has the advantage that it can go from one phone number to another phone number, without the need for an outside service centre, like MMS and SMS, or an email server. That is why I believe fax to have a slight security advantage against brute force/DOS/spam attacks,while taking into account the higher cost of fax transmission. In short, I prefer fax above other protocols, and overcoming the obstacles to its implementation is what open source is ideally suited to. The fax protocol is well established by its paper based history and therefore I believe that implementing fax on your mobile platform would mostly comprise 'tweaking ping'. Apparently from Symbian 9.1 you can't install anything on your phone ( vendor lock-in) without it being Symbian signed, including freeware to be Symbian signed as such. This is where I believe that implementing fax on your open source platform can make a number of communicator afficionado's very happy.

It would surely be a bad move to add support for proprietary or special-purpose heart-monitor radio signals to the base Neo1973 unit, at least unless this can be done in software for the standard RF gear. There are already [http://www.alivetec.com/products.htm Bluetooth heart monitors] out there, and non-Bluetooth monitors could be supported through a plug-in USB device given enough demand.

Should we transport the pages linked in the hardware wishes listing from the "linuxtogo - OpenMoko" Wiki to the OpenMoko Wiki?

Deleted 'gyroscope' mouse question, see the 'Accellerometer' entry - specifically the mouse, and viewport ones.--Speedevil 15:41, 16 February 2007 (CET)

miscellaneous external devices bluetooth connected

i dunno where to put it:

few (already suggested) external hardware apps could be realised over bluetooth: you could have your cycle computer sensor connected via bluetooth or you car-park-position-camera send the picture wirelessly to your neo/openmoko hardware :)

Move heart monitor support (Wish_List_-_Hardware#Heart_Rate_Compatibility) to Wishlist:Accessories?

It would surely be a bad move to add support for proprietary or special-purpose heart-monitor radio signals to the base Neo1973 unit, at least unless this can be done in software for the standard RF gear. There are already Bluetooth heart monitors out there, and non-Bluetooth monitors could be supported through a plug-in USB device given enough demand.
