Another Runner in the Race

After RoadRunner , IBM’s supercomputer with 6,480 dual-core processors, running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it is now the FreeRunner.

OpenMoko‘s Neo FreeRunner, running on Linux OS, is being made available to consumers worldwide. You can order it directly from their site, from TODAY !!!

Openmoko\'s Neo FreeRunner

The truly awesome thing about this phone (apart from the tech specs available on the site) is that not only can developers write their own software for it, right from the kernel and drivers to application , modifying the look and feel for the phone, but even hardware manufacturers can re-design it since it’s CAD file is available under the open source license.
I think a price of $399 or Rs.17,000-odd for a truly customizable phone is completely valid.
