Submission + - Linux-based iPhone killer to ship in March

An anonymous reader writes: FIC has announced an on-sale date for its Neo1973, expected to be the first low-cost, high-volume phone with a user-modifiable Linux-based operating system. Like Apple's iPhone, the Neo1973 is a GPS-enabled mobile phone with a high-resolution screen, but no hardware keypad. Unlike the iPhone, it'll cost $350 instead of $700, and have an open rather than closed Unix OS.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
