[News] Project Puts GNU/Linux on Apple's Handset

Hash: SHA1

Linux on the iPhone?

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, after Apple develops an elegant and perfectly understandable 
| mobile UI, Linux hackers want to tear it down. Bring on the OpenMoko, Android 
| or Ubuntu Mobile for the iPhone.  
| I enjoyed a recent post by PlanetBeing on the Linux on the iPhone blog. It 
| was an attempt to justify why someone would want to spend a tremendous amount 
| of time to bring Linux to the iPhone, when he or she could “just develop on 
| an open platform instead with no such wasted effort?”   



Open phone hardware vendor frees schematics

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenMoko has promised to publish schematic diagrams for its latest hardware
| design, the Neo FreeRunner. Schematics should enable community developers to
| create alternative firmware for the device, in order to better adapt it to
| entirely new purposes.


First Openmoko Custom Phone Now Available and Wears a Debian Plaid Kilt

,----[ Quote ]
| The Openmoko Neo Freerunner phone was released only a few weeks ago, and
| already, a customized version called the W.E. Phone is now available for
| purchase. So what's the difference between the naked-as-a-baby Neo and the
| Canadian-based W.E.? The latter comes with a full bundle of custom Google
| applications, on top of the core GNU/Linux OS base with dialing, SMS and
| contacts.


OpenMoko Neo Freerunner - Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Openmoko, born as a Free Software project under  GPL and LGPL license, is
| dedicated to delivering an open software stack on mobile platforms. Openmoko
| shipped its first product, the Neo 1973, on July 9 2007; and then turned into
| a start-up company with one aim: create great mobile products using the
| Openmoko stack: Open. Mobile. Free.
| The first Openmoko product, the Neo 1973, sold exclusively through Openmoko
| Online Shop. It sold out in early February 2008.
| Openmoko started selling the Neo FreeRunner (GTA02), the second generation of
| Neo, on July 3, 2008. It is available through the Openmoko Online Shop or
| national distributers.
| I received my FreeRunner as part of the first batch of orders shipped on July
| 7th.  I've now been playing with it for 10 days and these are my impressions.
| [...]
| All said and done I really like the phone.  And, like the main devs, am
| hesitant to call it a "phone".  It is really a handheld Linux computer that
| happens to have GPS and a GSM phone built-in.


FreeRunner Linux phone sells out, more on the way

,----[ Quote ]
| Less that one week after going on sale via its own e-commerce site, the
| 900MHz version of OpenMoko's Neo FreeRunner Linux phone has sold out, but
| don't despair yet as more are on the way.

| production run for the device's developer preview after unexpected demand.
