The Neo1973 is a first-generation phone made by FIC that runs OpenMoko Linux. It works on GSM networks and has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.0, integrated A-GPS and a microSD slot for storage. The kits will let developers write programs for the Neo1973 and FIC plans to release a retail version with the new programs on board later this year. The final version will also add 3D graphics support, a faster processor and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. Developers can purchase several different kits to get started. The base kit costs $300 and the advanced kit costs $450.

Is anyone going to buy one of these and try to develop something for it? I would like to, but I will probably wait until others give it a try and share their experiences.

A new T-Mobile HotSpot phone?

T-Mobile could take that phone and make sure it's preloaded with software to allow HotSpot@Home calling. That opens the possibility to a bada$$ phone.
