I don't think thre is much point to that. If you have an industrial embedded/m2m application, then the first thing you worry about is reliability. There you want to have a GSM stack that is tested and evaluated thoroughly, and which is deployed for a decade or two, in as many networks as possible. Sierra, Cinterion, Wavecom and others have a well-established market, and their products do very well in adressing that markets needs. I don't see what OsmoocmBB would bring that they'd require. The target user for the "OsmocomBB based phone" would be primarily a "free software enthusiast", i.e. somebody who likes Free Software for the fredom that it has. And such users are interested in real telephones, notin modems for embedded systems. -- - Harald Welte <laforge at gnumonks.org> http://laforge.gnumonks.org/ ============================================================================ "Privacy in residential applications is a desirable marketing option."
