This morning, Sean Moss-Pultz sent an email to the Openmoko community mailing list with the schedule for the release of the Neo1973
The time table looks like this:
- 2007-02-11 Phase 0: Free phones sent out to key community members so that software starts to be written “ahead” of the main launches. Also community websites (including a wiki, a bugzilla and a planet aggregator)
- 2007-03-11 Phase 1: Official Developer Launch, anyone can buy a phone for $350USD + p&p (<£200)
- 2007-09-11 Phase 2: Mass Market Sale: “At this point, we hope that your mum and dad will want one too”. At this point also the 2nd gen device will be introduced
I suspect I’ll have bought one before the end of March, there’s a few things I definately want to write for it.
I’m really looking forward to this, I really hope it’s a big success.
