GTA03 is the codename of a phone that is currently in development by Openmoko. It seems as if it will not be available before Q3 2009. This post from Steve Mosher gives more details.

The GTA03 will be based on a more advanced system-on-a-chip of same family as the Neo FreeRunner (GTA02). It will presumably differ from it by having EDGE and a camera. GTA03 will not include support for 3G networks because of the high price of 3G chips for low volume phones [1].

Speculations: This article or section documents a device that is not yet confirmed formally and the device (if even released) may differ from the specifications given here. This page is based on well educated guesses, not facts.

GTA03 Specifications

The GTA03 will be based on the GTA02 introducing several major hardware changes

New:

  • New case design
  • New GSM chip: Cinterion, (Siemens) MC75i
    • 2.75G / EDGE
    • Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • New WiFi/Bluetooth chip: Marvell 88W8688
  • Different Battery (Wishlist/LiFePO4 Battery based? - for long life?)
  • Camera
  • SoC: s3c6410
    • includes Samsungs own 3D accelerator
    • 533/667MHz operating frequency
    • Vector Floating-Point (VFP) coprocessor
  • GPS: ANTARIS 5
  • Display: TPO LPJ028T007A 2.8" LCM
  • Touchscreen: EETI PCAP7200 capacitive touch device driver.

Removed:

  • SMEDIA Glamo

GTA03 Evaluation Board

  • 2008-08-11: the 25 first GTA03EVB arrived in office
  • 2008-08-12: U-boot ported to GTA03EVB (Matt)
