However, it's not over. The project has decided to continue the campaign, as they need as many "preorders" as possible in order to lower the price of the device (by producing more than just 200) and make production of some custom parts more feasible. Therefore their next goal is set to 100 000 €."
Here is a video presenting the idea: http://youtu.be/EJHMXQ3nSt0
If your donation is above 100 eur, then that amount will be deducted from your purchase of the final version of the Neo900. The final motherboard is expected to be in the range of 500-700 eur depending on the amount of orders and availability of components."

That torrent only includes 16 bit per sample FLAC. The original audio is 32 bits per sample so quality is lost.

Does anybody happen to have an rtmpdump url for this?
My experience come from owning a notion ink adam tablet with the pixelqi screen.
It is readable outside in sunlight.
BUT it is only readable when there is MUCH sunlight and it is NOT very good even under those optimal conditions.
The contrast is extremely bad, hence you get best results with most sunlight but they are still not optimal. Plus, even with most sunlight, the viewing angle is still extremely narrow and when you tilt the screen just a bit too much, the content becomes unreadable.
I am not surprised why we do not see these "magical" displays in more hardware.
...what happens in those 2 of 100 cases it detected your behind wrongly?
the product is dead and the company silent.
I've been with the project for over two and a half years and pre-ordered mine in february 2010 - no product yet. It was always delayed and the current status is:
forum silent, irc silent (been in both for three years now) and no answer to any email.
the product is total vaporware - dont buy it!
I got a second-hand V1 touchbook though but even that one is not recommendable - it has many hardware bugs, the most important one being that charging doesnt properly work and while there are resoldering solutions to some, there are none to others.
I have it running and here is how: http://blog.mister-muffin.de/2011/05/01/putting-debian-on-the-notion-ink-adam/
I pre-ordered a smartbook in february 2010 (!!) and there is nothing there yet.
Forums are dead.
IRC is dead.
No reply to any email you send to them.
Dont bother with this company!
The new hardware features:
- DM3730 (800 MHz)
- GTM601W UMTS (HSPA)
(and lots more)"
why not instead of whining about the situation, help making a privacy respecting smartphone platform happen?
The successor to the openmoko gta02 is the goldendelicious gta04 featuring an omap3 processor and umts internet and many more things you would want your smartphone to have.
They started preorders now: http://www.handheld-linux.com/wiki.php?page=GTA04
So quit whining, get yourself a truly free and open phone and help making the operating system where YOU choose and not some evil corporation.
I have debian with e17 using the illume theme running on the notion ink adam tablet and I'm really impressed how well it works.
The packages in debian unstable are new enough for a proper installation of e17 and bootstrapping debian for armel is also piece of cake using multistrap.
maybe worth looking into it.

Troubles start when each operating system wants to get control over wireless, the display or any other resource they all share and expect to have exclusive control over. So considering how many bugs we already have in current operating systems I can hardly imagine the amount of hacks required to android or GNU/Linux to make them at least cooperate enough for basic functionality is worth the benefits of having multiple OS at the same time. I dont really see the advantage of such a feature.
is that you can win a game.
nobody EVER won tetris!!!
