Hi James,

Well neo freerunner is maybe relative an old phone. Here in Europe I i
got it whit debug board (but whit out microSD card) about two month
ago form http://pulster.de/ (Really pleasant store!)

I just purchase it because of the spirit. Because I like to learn
about phones, stacks, and own the hardware. Why should I buy closed
hardware if there is free one around? My decision was to support the
manufacturers who support free technologies.
In the long run I would like to use this as my daily phone.

I was happy to find a gentoo distro on the openmoko wiki page:

No experience if there is an other phone where you can install eGentoo to it.
maybe nexus-s or android-dev? I just googled a bit around:

No idea about the network access in the US.

So much about my thoughts.
Best Wishes, Elmar
