The day of limited smartphone platforms is quickly coming to an end. Now, you have Android, iPhone, RIM, Symbian, Winmo, and the latest addition (officially, since it went from vaporware to shipping) is OpenMoko.

Smartphones are inherently superior to traditional phones in that they are extensibe, but usually this comes at the expense of simplicity and stability. However, with the example and model the iPhone set, all manufacturers are scrambling to simplify and touchify. Openmoko is one of the few independent new platforms, and actually they had a demo of their UI BEFORE the iPhone, so I give them credit for it being innovative, and not just another iPhone me-too. Check them out!
