OpenMoko's Freerunner gets streamlined, priced

According to someone with authority, the OpenMoko Freerunner phone platform will be selling for $399. There was originally a lux version planned, but they decided to stick with one model and snip until it went below four hundred bucks. It should look somewhat like the Neo-type phone pictured at left.

I’ve always been excited for this OpenMoko to get their gear out there on the market, and I’m glad to see movement on that front. Despite the various changes they had to make to bring the price down, the Freerunner supports a ton of stuff – powered USB, graphics acceleration, GPS and wi-fi – so I definitely want to get my hands on one as soon as they’re good to go.
