OpenMoko Schedule Revised, For X-Mas
Phoronix: OpenMoko Schedule Revised, For X-Mas
This past week the Phase 2 "Mass Market" schedule for the OpenMoko Neo1973 was revised. OpenMoko now expects the GTA02v3 design to be finalized by September 20 while on December 10 it will begin production in "moderate volumes".
I'm not sure about others, but I was certainly looking forward to this project. Nothing like the iPhone, but a pure open platform and good looking too. My only complaint... When will it be available where I live?
Where are you located?

It did quite clearly say 'estimated timeline', and referred to a source on IRC, and hoped that the delivery service would emphasise this.
I've added a caveat, though maybe I should have added <blink>more html</blink>
As to will it be available - it ships worldwide, you buy it from direct.openmoko.com.
You will not be able to buy it from shops for some months at best.
What about the carrier? What bands will it support, etc? Sorry if I'm asking stuff already in the Wiki (I'll check that out anyway), too excited to know that I CAN buy directly on-line (and I take it, it'll be shipped to my country)

And I'm in no rush to have it next month vs. the end of the year... either way it will have more features than damn near any other phone currently available by the simple fact that it runs Linux. It's been a while since I've checked the wiki pages on it though... I'll have to see if there are any updates on available software or features.
