Submission + - iPhone-like Linux Phone Delayed

An anonymous reader writes: As Apple launches its iPhone, a company attempting to build a similar touchscreen-based phone around an open, user-extensible Linux OS has acknowledged significant delays. OpenMoko now hopes to ship its first "mass market" model in October, according to the leader of the project, which is spinning out as a separate company from Taiwanese OEM/ODM giant FIC. All of OpenMoko.com's phones will reportedly be unlocked GSM/GPRS devices, and will run a user-modifiable Linux-based OS maintained by OpenMoko.org, an open source project sponsored largely by FIC to date.
