OpenMoko is a free phone(not as in beer) running linux, open software, open hardware.
Having three of the machines at the metalab right now, one of them with a dev-kit, we should be able to "do some stuff"
Torpor is going to order a 10-pack of the Freerunner next weeks(April/May 2008) which saves some bucks compared to the price of a single unit - if you want to participate, list your name here - in case there's no other info about you around, please also add your contact(6 slots open for the first 10-pack, maybe we can fill a second one too).
It will cost about EUR 260 - 300Euro. - the price is still to be confirmed.
UPDATE FROM SLITE: I just started a 2nd group, to see how much people would be interested. I started a thread on the community mailinglist where i was told about the group order here. Three people already mailed me who were interested, i pointed them here too. Lets see if we get enough. For the people who don't are members, some info on how we plan to organize the moneytransfer, purchase and distribution of the device would be usefull. I would suggest sit-ins at metalab for also getting known each other. --slite 11:13, 26. Apr. 2008 (CEST))
