The Neo FreeRunner handset has been talked about since January, when the firm announced plans to develop a handset to run its open source phone software. And now Openmoko’s confirmed that the phone will be available tomorrow, 4 July.

Assisted GPS and Wi-Fi help you connect

Its handset runs on Linux and, according to Openmoko, will ship with “core software†for dialling, SMS and recording contacts. The firm also claims that periodic software downloads will help users “take full advantage of the phone’s hardware platformâ€.

Connectivity-wise, the phone will feature tri-band GSM connectivity and support Assisted GPS. It will also enable 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connections, alongside Bluetooth 2.0 for short-range data transfers.

The phone has a 2.8in, 480 x 640 touchscreen, but doesn’t come with a camera. It does feature a Micro SD card slot.

The Neo FreeRunner handset will be available online and in unnamed retailers’ stores for around $400 (£200/€235). ®

I've heard talk about this since over a year ago... Are you sure that by tomorrow they don't mean NEXT year?
