- "I just wanted a phone that I could hack on and (as corny as this sounds) to share these hacks with my peers and gain their respect." Gervais Mulongoy
- "I have a desktop PC, a laptop, two WLAN routers and a handheld (GP2X). Each device runs a variant of the GNU/Linux operating system. The free software on them makes them much more valuable and useful: One of the WLAN routers serves as a node in a public city-wide wireless network providing my internet access as well everyone who uses it as a relay node. Without free software such uses would not be possible. A mobile phone that from the ground up is build with free software is an excellent opportunity to explore new uses and features in this area. Apart from that I expect standard software (dialing etc.) to be of much higher quality and customizability.
- Finally I appreciate that LaForge (aka Harald Welte) is involved in the project. :-)" Robert Schuster
- "I want a hackable open source phone. It's OpenMoko rather then Neo1973 i want. I want to be able to hack in places I can't now. The project list is already way too big... Some light wight general plug-in system (D-Bus for activation/control and probably a subset of xembed). Your email (or any) viewer should be able to view anything You have a viewer for! Get Linux Vserver going, for lightweight sandboxing and carry dedicated 'machines' (for development, media station etc) in usb memory sticks (The need for self-powered usb sticks that charges when inserted in powered usb slots is huge). Want one yesterday!" Lars Hallberg
- "This is my way to support the open source community even if i don't need a new device although i own an A780 :-)" Thomas Siegl
- "As a developer I always thought of implementing programs doing the stuff I need on a mobile. Starting with symbian on a se910i i was lost. Using java gave a little more freedom but no access to important stuff. The greenphone was the first linux-driven phone where I could do what I wanted but development was a pain because trolltec did not release information on a important thinks like certain ioctls of kerneldrivers, the build system and so on - in fact the greenphone is advertising for their qtopia. Now with the Neo1973 (and I am more interested in the Neo and system-daemons like gsmd than Openmoko-GUI) it is now possible to do exactly what I thought of." M. Dietrich
