Naw, it's not really the truly open and hackable software-defined radio based cellphones we've long lusted after, but the OpenMoko
Linux / GNU based GSM platform (and hardware) is finally up for sale
. $300 brings home
an OpenMoko Neo 1973 (aka Neo Base kit), perfect for getting your OpenMoko app dev project started. $450 brings home the Neo Advanced kit, "everything the mobile device hacker wants to get down and dirty with the first freed phone". Happy hacking.
