As it turns out, they sold out of the 900MHz capable versions. http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/index.php/id;1584423557;fp;2;fpid;1
We in North America need the 850MHz version and they just hadn't posted them as of meeting time!
Also the link to buy from their USA office at www.fica.com is useless:
a) fica.com cratered early Friday (under the load?) and was down until Monday morning.
b) just a circular link back to openmoko.com, no way to buy!
I have placed my order on openmoko.com and we should be able to play with it by next meeting.
I love my palm Treo - but it is about physically worn out and I am tired of rebooting it all time. I had to jump soon anyway - at least this is in the open direction!
