OpenMoko Neo Freerunner - Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Openmoko, born as a Free Software project under GPL and LGPL license, is
| dedicated to delivering an open software stack on mobile platforms. Openmoko
| shipped its first product, the Neo 1973, on July 9 2007; and then turned into
| a start-up company with one aim: create great mobile products using the
| Openmoko stack: Open. Mobile. Free.
|
| The first Openmoko product, the Neo 1973, sold exclusively through Openmoko
| Online Shop. It sold out in early February 2008.
|
| Openmoko started selling the Neo FreeRunner (GTA02), the second generation of
| Neo, on July 3, 2008. It is available through the Openmoko Online Shop or
| national distributers.
|
| I received my FreeRunner as part of the first batch of orders shipped on July
| 7th. I've now been playing with it for 10 days and these are my impressions.
|

|
| All said and done I really like the phone. And, like the main devs, am
| hesitant to call it a "phone". It is really a handheld Linux computer that
| happens to have GPS and a GSM phone built-in.

Proprietary platforms like that of the iPhone are crippled, restricted and
limited by design. It's like taking a fine new PC to make a dumb terminal.
