Android is open, but the hardware that runs it is not. There are hardly any open source hardware or mobile devices in the market. With the MWC in full swing, Aava Mobile has unveiled what is supposed to be the first fully open mobile device. They are offering reference designs for variety of smartphones and tablets with features like that of a computer. The design shown at MWC is aimed at manufacturers and carriers who can customize the design as they want. More details below the cut.

Aava Mobile is laying claim to have come out with the thinnest ever x86-based smartphone device with the design they showed off at MWC. The smartphone is based on the Intel Atom Moorestown platforms and will initially come with support for Moblin 2.1 and Android along with plans for MeeGo support in the future. The device has some rather cool features including an extended touchscreen, full HD video capability, microUSB port, HD video conferencing, dual mics, 3D sound and UI along with GSM and WiFi connectivity. Also present is GPS, Compass and an accelerometer for motion sensing.
