The OpenMoko phone is now available. This first release is more aimed
at developers, but even then this looks like a great system.
Can't wait to see the first few reviews. As is, I want one of the
advanced models just so I can get the cool gadgets (aka development
tools) and case. But, like any cell phone purchase I need to check if
my provider has GSM coverage, and if the phone would work in Calgary
(willing to change provider if I can keep the same number...)
I believe this type of phone is going to be the catalyst for a massive
change in the way telecommunications is done. It effectively opens up
the market to open source software, has some decent connection options
(bluetooth, USB, etc.), and even throws in some 3D accelerometers. The
integrations projects for this gadget are staggering.
