Linux phone goes on sale

Filed under
Linux

TWO VERSIONS of a truly open Linux mobile phone, the Neo, have gone on web sale in the US, made by FIC of Taiwan.

It's based on an official standard for a Linux mobile called Openmoko, although FIC does appear to be driving this standard.

There's basically two versions of the Neo – a Base model for $300 and the Advanced version for $450. Each model comes in either black/silver or white/orange.

re: Service?

From FIC's homepage - it's a GSM Quad Band phone.

Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt. Read more
