sending this item along seen on the ROS list.

Not sure if OpenMoko folks have already seen it.

A future board similar to SIE nee SAKC would
benefit from a real time OS. This one [ROS]
appears to be open and free and widely supported.

Subject: [ros-users] ROS running on Neo Freerunner
Hi everyone,

I spent some time on the weekend to get ROS diamondback running on the
OpenMoko smart phone Neo Freerunner. With it's WiFi,  GPS, Accelerometers
and Linux capabilities it might be an alternative for robot projects where a
netbook is to large or to heavy.

I put an installation guide here:

I was not really sure where to put it, as it is not really a tutorial and
also no stack description. So if the place is inappropriate, it would be
nice if someone could move it.
