Those who have been waiting for the next-generation OpenMoko phone (called
"GTA03" or "3D7K") will be disappointed; OpenMoko has come to the
conclusion that it will not be able to successfully complete the project.
Instead, the company will work, for now, on making the FreeRunner phone
actually work and on a mysterious "Project B". For more information,
see this post
by OpenMoko marketing chief
Steve Mosher. "As it was defined, it is dead. So how do we get to a
new GTA03? Two requirements: continue to improve GTA02; deliver on project
B. What is GTA03 and when do we get there? There are a number of
independent efforts out there that are pitching me ideas for GTA03. I
talked to sean a bit about this and I'd like to try to open up more of the
design process and the marketing process to the community.
