‘usability trainwreck’

Video comparing usability of the Open Moko mobile phone operating system with the iPhone. Unfavourably.

Comments point out that it will get better. True, and Open Source success stories like Firefox took a long time before achieving stability and widespread adoption.

Question is, how long are you prepared to wait?

“So, we installed another possible frontend for the FreeRunner, the Qtopia phone frontend. In general it’s better, but really doesn’t solve any of the deeper problems with this phone. It’s still sluggish, still has horrible input methods, and still is not a valid substitute for an iPhone. Anyone who recommends you the FreeRunner as a substitute for the iPhone is attempting to play a cruel joke on you and should be treated as such.”
