So, if you want ssh on your phone ... get a Neo1973! It's there. _You_
have the power (<chuckle>if you have the power .... </chuckle>) ....
There are alot of interesting things with openMoKo - it's the S/W. The
phone (neo1973) has its advantages as well - or at least the Phase 2
(GTA02) phone will. The one shipping now is a developer version. It
does not have the WiFi or accelerometers or increase RAM or faster
But the Phase 1 phone (GTA01B_v04) will do the ssh - if you want!
There is a comparison to the iPhone on the openMoKo wiki -
