OpenMoko Neo1973 Goes on sale - on schedule
The OpenMoko website started selling the developer preview of the Neo1973 cell phone on July 9th, as promised. Linux-based and all open source (except for a tiny shim around the GSM module), this is the phone that most every open source developer should have. The current offering is a bit short on software, but the price reflects that. Why buy that closed-shop iPhone when you can have an open source Neo phone? And, check the site to find out why it's called Neo1973!

Intel just launched a project to develop open source software for linux-based mobile devices.  http://www.moblin.org/
