Gizmodo reports that a consumer edition of the Neo 1973 will be available this spring. It will be revealed on the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas next week.
“The phone will have the same “overall look and feel” as the developers’ product, but it has a faster 500MHz processor, 3D graphics, and a new lineup of open-source mobile apps. It’s a GSM tri-band world phone with either 850MHz or 900MHz on the low end, and it has 802.11b/g as well for hotspot action. Oh, and it will also have motion sensors for gesture-based activity.”
A Norwegian report is here.
UPDATE: Here is the official communication from OpenMoko.
I can only say: GREAT NEWS!
