OpenMoko CEO Sean Moss-Pultz recently said at a conference that the company has discontinued work on the follow-up to its FreeRunner open source Linux handset. The FreeRunner is meant for developers, who could buy a kit along with the device to help them design software and applications for it. The follow-up handset, known internally as the GTA03, aimed to improve upon the FreeRunner. The original FreeRunner only sold about 10,000 units. Moss-Pultz said that it has reduced its staff by 50% in a bid to survive. It is now concentrating efforts on a new product (rather than the GTA03) that is not a mobile phone. Moss-Pulz said that OpenMoko will continue to support the FreeRunner, and hopes to make phones again at some point in the future.
