oFono E17 module

This week I’ve been playing a little with e_widgets and gadcon api and have done an initial integration of oFono into E17. I’ve wrote a small module to show status information of mobile modems and it’s powered state.

When powered, network name and status are shown on the tooltip, together with signal strength, which is also shown on the notification area image.

If you click over the notification area the modem name and power control are shown in a small popup.

The module can be used to show info about usb gsm modems or mobile phones over bluetooth. Give it a try, report bugs, make suggestions. There is more to come on this topic soon.

Handsfree HF role

Here at ProFUSION we’ve been helping people at BlueZ, oFono, and PulseAudio to add support for the Handsfree-unit role of the bluetooth Handsfree Profile to Linux. We had some nice progress this week that lead us to make a video showing what we have so far. It’s still not merged upstream, and definitely not user friendly. But hey, it works!

Kudos to Gustavo Padovan for implementing most of this support into BlueZ and oFono.
