The Neo1973 is the first phone designed to run OpenMoko. It is a phone that can be used with any GSM operator, and it is manufactured by FIC who instigated the OpenMoko project.

If you just received a Neo1973 here are some suggestions for getting started.

Neo1973 Hardware and Disassembling Neo1973 have more information on the hardware.

See OpenMoko, OpenMokoFramework, MokoMakefile and Development resources for more information about source code.

See FAQ for other Frequently Asked Questions.
