Open. Mobile. Free. is the tagline

It captures our culture. OPEN, GPL code; MOBILE, focus on the unwired life;
FREE, no charge for the OS.

That tagline will not change.

I think something as simple as a cheerful suggestion to "Open up"
would be a really good motto. It sort of suggests a feeling of
increased communication.  Old phones have kept you closed off from
accessing technology the way you want, whereas trying openmoko would
let you out of such confines.
I could see a slight downside if someone interpreted it as an order,
like someone banging on your door, screaming it.  It's all in the
delivery though.

Also since Openmoko allows users to turn their device into whatever
they can dream of, something like: "Open to interpretation" might be
another cool motto.
