I tested an OpenMoko device at LinuxWorld, with an app the staff at the
booth thought was written in Python, and the experience was pretty good
(a little slower than I would expect, but since I don't know how
responive OpenMoko is in general it is hard to compare). There was
nothing that I could see that would even tell what language was used to
implement the application.

OpenMoko is not yet usable/reliable enough for normal use.
