Open Source-based OpenMoko mobile goes live
With a bit of a delay, OpenMoko is opening their website providing access to information on its integrated open source mobile communications platform. Even though some "Buy Now" links are shown, those are not active yet.

OpenMoko is based on Linux open source efforts, offering common storage models and libraries for application developers. Since the platform is based on OpenEmbedded, it provides end-users access to existing open source applications from the OpenZaurus, Familiar Linux, and Ångström projects as well as many other open source efforts.

One of OpenMoko’s goals is the effortless mobile application delivery, facilitated by a software manager that makes it easy to add, remove, and update applications. These applications will be available through feeds including “OpenMoko Certified” as well as other commercial and community sources.

OpenMoko has partnered with mobile open source software company, Funambol, to provide full push e-mail and PIM synchronization support to all applications running on the OpenMoko platform. The company says with OpenMoko and Funambol, mobile phones will stay in sync with their environment while automatically update themselves as new features are added and bugs are fixed.

The Neo1973 comes with a 2.8” VGA touch screen, A-GPS for location and navigation services, support for GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, application manager to install / remove / update applications, push e-mail, contacts, and calendar synchronization plus the OpenMoko Software Development Kit (SDK) for application development

Cellular data will be available through GPRS. The device sports 128MB SDRAM, 64MB NAND flash, and memory can be expanded through a microSD slot.
