Frst OpenMoko Phone Goes on Sale

The Neo1973 is now available at the OpenMoko website. It is the first totally open and documented phone. I was planning to get one, but sadly the shipping costs are prohibitive. It is a good thing that this phone can be ordered worldwide, but depending on where you live, you pay up to 50% extra. FIC has so many offices world-wide, a shame they did not have more concern for the development community outside the US.

So I'll wait for the next revision, announced for October, which hopefully will be distributed from Europe as well.
