A year ago FIC started selling the OpenMoko Neo Base Developer Preview phone and starting on July 4 (in just two days) they will begin selling the OpenMoko Neo FreeRunner. The OpenMoko web store will begin accepting orders starting on the 4th of July while orders will begin processing on the 7th.

According to the OpenMoko product page, the Neo FreeRunner has a 2.8" touchscreen, ARM9 processor at 400MHz, 2D/3D graphics acceleration, Tri-band [850,900]/1800/1900 MHz GSM, 128MB of SDRAM, 256MB of NAND Flash, 802.11b/g WiFi, GPRS 2.5G, dual 3axis Motion Sensors, and Bluetooth 2.0. The OpenMoko software stack is comprised of Linux and 100% free software. The price of this phone is $400 USD.

The OpenMoko has seen several revisions and other work going on while battling Google's Android and the other Linux mobile platforms, but it's good to see the Neo FreeRunner finally shipping.
