Meet OpenMoko

I'm not going to try to explain too much here, but I received my Neo 1973, the OpenMoko-based Smart phone today. While it's a developer preview, it's incredibly exciting. So far I've been able to use my Cingular SIM card, if you use AT&T/Cingular, you can check if yours is supported on the wiki. I can run the general built in suite of applications without too much trouble, I also made a phone call, which worked! Unfortunately however the latest build that I have on my Neo doesn't have sound properly working, which sagacis from the #openmoko channel on Freenode is helping me with currently. I'm a bit over-excited so I'll let the images do the rest of the talking for me.

In general, it's a bit slow, but the developer preview is probably about half as powerful as the planned public-released version. so I'm not exceedingly worried about that. This phone is just all around cool, and will hopefully be a fun device to carry around with me. You can check up on the OpenMoko community by adding Planet OpenMoko to the feed reader of your choice. This is just the beginning.
