"Neo 1973 is sold out
By Jouston Huang
Neo1973 - OpenMoko After weeks hard work and a lot of complains from my wife. We sold out our Neo 1973 now. In fact, if you place order now. The ETA will be almost October 2007.... "


"Sold out!
Please note that due to unexpected high demand, even at this early development stage, our quantities up to and including August 2007 are already oversold. This means that any orders placed now will not be shipping before September 10, 2007. We ask for your understanding. Your credit card will only be charged immediately before delivery."

This is --simply unacceptable-- and not enough information for people who have recently ordered. 

FIC --MUST-- do a better job of communicating with thier developers/customers.  Those folks who have placed orders that will not be getting a device until October --MUST-- be contacted immediately via email and given the option to cancel their orders. 

I ordered back on July 24th and have not received ANY follow-on status on my order, and I'm sure there are lots of other folks being equally ignored as well.  What are we supposed to think about this news???  Am "I" one of the "oversold"????

We have all been exceedingly patient with this project and we deserve a reasonable level of communication about the status of our orders.
