The Monthly GNU Column

Brave GNU World


This column looks into projects and current affairs in the world of free software from the perspective of the GNU Project and the FSF. In this issue,we focus on communication programs for mobile telephones.

Several free software projects have appeared in the past few years to provide support for mobile applications. In this month’s Brave Gnu World, we look at Gnokii, MyGnokii, Gammu. Gammu+, and Wammu. Gnokii Gnokii [5] is certainly one of the bestknown free software projects for communicating with mobile phones. It was launched in February 1999 as a merger between two projects aimed at bringing the functionality of the “Nokia Cellular Data Suite (CDS)” to other platforms .
