Well, it is not a phone -- it is internet tablet, a gadget like PDA, but
with larger screen (800x480) and orientation on net-surfing and VoIP
(XMPP client with voice transfer support).

Erlang/OTP was compiled under scratchbox environment using package build
rules from Debian GNU/Linux repository.

Yes, it is powered by OS based on Debian GNU/Linux with kernel
2.6.18. See http://maemo.org/ for details.

The next step will be erlang/ejabberd cluster of several Nokia N800
devices. I will announce it as soon I have some more free time.

Thank you for your interest.
