Apparently, ABC local news did a short story that included the new OpenMoko user interface we at OpenedHand designed and implemented. I guess that’s sort of fame by proxy, as long as you are in the know!
But hot on the heals of the pixmap theme, I’ve already started work implementing a GDK based theme engine for OpenMoko. The main reason being that the Neo1973 lacks an FPU so performance is hit by scaling all the pixmaps. I could use cairo rather than GDK, but unfortunatly cairo performance isn’t much better than the pixmap performance. It’s still in very early stages, but it makes for a much snappier user interface. If anyone has any tips on reducing the banding in the gradients, I’d be interested to hear them (the display on the Neo1973 is only 16bpp).
