    Anybody buy one yet? Impressions?
    I came upon a barroom full of bad Salon pictures in which men with hats on the backs of their heads were wolfing food from a counter. It was the institution of the "free lunch" I had struck. You paid for a drink and got as much as you wanted to eat. For something less than a rupee a day a man can feed himself sumptuously in San Francisco, even though he be a bankrupt. Remember this if ever you are stranded in these parts. ~ Rudyard Kipling, 1891

    Can you replace the whole OS yourself? Or is it locked down?

    When you can buy a phone with an replaceable open source OS I will be buying it, because I am guessing that the whole open source community will be getting it and improving it.

        According to Wikipedia, the only part of the Neo Freerunner openmoko phone which currently works is the GSM phone. That is not something I would pay $500 for.
