Distributor spins "W.E. phone"

,----[ Quote ]
| Mississauga, Ontario-based Koolu Inc. has agreed to distribute OpenMoko's
| Linux-based Neo FreeRunner in the Americas, the U.K., and the European Union.
| Koolu is distributing the FreeRunner under the name W.E. Phone, and is
| bundling it with Google Apps.
|
| The Neo FreeRunner shipped on July 4th, and was billed as a completely open
| source, hackable hardware platform based on GNU Linux and the OpenMoko.org
| phone stack. Users are free to install and run new operating system firmware,
| for example in order to add native Linux software applications of their own
| choosing. As distributed by Koolu, the W.E. Phone version of the FreeRunner
| appears to have some software customizations, including Google Apps.
