Thanks so much for the clarification --  I guess I missed that!

So it sounds like the $399 includes shipping to Freemont, CA?  We're
responsible for shipping from there?

And how appropriate that the openmoko neo freerunner goes to Freemont!

I am so excited about this phone I just can't stand it!!!!!!!!!

Cheers to you all!
