To be clear, they updated their EULA in response to this. See
<http://linuxdevices.com/news/NS4872069549.html>. But the device still ships
with proprietary components, and is less free than the OpenMoko.

(I'm not wild about giving away nonfree technical documentation books either.
Or are the 30 German books licensed freely?)
