We were willing to wait for the commercial version to start our
development, but if that is not going to be functional in the USA in
remote areas like other cellphones, then it is lights-out for any
possible future vendor here in the USA who want to incorporate this in
to an existing product line.
Thats a fact not a wine.
I will get a development kit from Apple and live with it.
Our products need a gps/phone/computer system as an add-on and it cant
wait past January 2008.
If the GPS works great I will buy it as a PDA in future once it is released.
This morning the project using the NEO was canned, reasons are, ever
shifting timetables and secondly, too much risk when the rug is pulled
from under your feet by FIC suddenly not supporting US frequency bands,
while there are other alternatives such as Iphone available with a
development kit that might meet our development scenario -- (about just).
Unfortunately rural access is crucial for our applications, so it just
became a no-no.
Anyway thanks to all for the input, and the NEO was a great idea till
now, unfortunately it does not seem if it will be available in a working
state within the next year here in the USA.
All of luck with OpenMoko.

Well, then add in the WIKI that GPS will still work in NA, else it only
makes matters worse for marketing and is misleading by not disclosing
all the features that will work..
