I attended its pre-launch event just now and here're some stuff to highlight to fellow Linux users or Android lovers.
- No, there's no official Linux software or drivers and I don't see why they shall release one. But things shall really work OOTB.
- No, HTC lovers, you can't run Evo 4G on it, as Evo works only with 2.5GHz-2.7GHz WiMAX. In Malaysia, WiMAX is currently deployed with 2.3GHz spectrum; although MCMC recently has granted the 2.6GHz spectrum - we still gotta wait.
- Yes, you have to buy the phones from YTL and given that WiMAX requires no SIM, I am not sure whether that'll encourage vendor locked down and monopoly. My question on this wasn't really answered.
- They are Samsung lovers and the available handset now is Samsung Epic 4G. I don't use and never like a QWERTY phone.
- I suppose they have customized their phones with their own software, but custom ROM shall work just fine with all the necessary apk.
- Yes, Android is the only platform for now. iPhone 4 is not a 4G network phone, yet.
