OpenMoko - Not Only an Open Phone Platform

Anonymous Coward writes | about 7 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "The OpenMoko open phone project has announced the release dates of not only their first hardware releases (October for $450 for the public release), but also that they will be forming a company which designs and sells hardware and Free software in conjunction with FIC and the Open Source community. It appears that hackers will get first crack at the Neo1973, with widespread release before the end of the year including Wi-Fi and accelerometers. 'Hacker Lunchboxes' will be available for those hardcore projects that need a bit more access to the hardware inside.

With the Neo1973's release, other, more iexpensive, iclosed, itouchscreen phones will have some competition. My bet is on the ilocked phone to win... initially.
