Hack your phone, void the warranty? Trolltech’s upcoming Linux-based Greenphone, due this month, is meant to be hacked. “The company says it expects to be “surprised” by what users come up with.”
CTO Benoit Schillings added, “I’ll tell you a secret. Getting the phone into open source developers’ hands is exactly what I want to happen.”
Benoit Schillings? Hold the phone (no pun intended). Benoit was a key software engineer at Be. One of the first to join the company, in fact. Goes around, comes around. Great to see he’s up to cool stuff. Not sure I’d be cool with a chartreuse phone though.
