Free Runner is the first consumer smart phone with freedom in it. openmoko releases the consumer version after releasing a couple of developer phone(it was "neo" back then) Gec thrissur have a student with dev version of openmoko. and pramode sir too have it (pramode.net) see his blogpost about that http://pramode.net/2007/10/20/the-magic-box/ .it was purely dev versions with battery backup for just 3hrs and charging time upto12hrs and sreeraj @gec thrissur who too have this phone, hardly made a call with it!!as the softwares were not much at that point Now the game is different this is FreeRunner a consumer phone.,with just 20000/- How this is different from other phones? 1) freedom see http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/announce/2007-January/000000.html a mail @ openmoko-announce titled "Free Your Phone" 2)just see this piece of talk between the consumer and company rep: Michael <simarillion>: can somebody tell me if I will lose my warranty when I open my Freerunner. Sean Moss-Pultz <sean@xxxxxxxxxxxx>: [...] Do you really think we could get away with that kind of policy?! This is Openmoko. If you *don't* open your Neo, you should probably have your warranty voided ;-) I took it from the blog here http://psung.blogspot.com/2008/07/freerunner-first-impressions.html i am thinking of giving it a try.,.its available inside india itself..see http://www.idasystems.net/ Any one who wish to have freedom in their mobile phone(ops but for the hardcore guys..even the concept of mobile phone is non-freedom as the big brother can always chase you.. it emits signals even if its off..) can have it. FInally see the home of freerunner at openmoko.com Get Involved! Happy Hacking Shyam K
