Free Runner price vs iphone 3G price

Hello everyone,

I dont pretend to start a flamewar of "FreeRunner vs iPhone". Everyone knows their advantages and disadvantages and at least for me the main reason to buy an openmoko is the freedom.

But the new iPhone 3G price was announced, and the 8 Gigas version will cost only $199 USD and it automatically makes the OpenMoko phone expensive, because they have similar characteristics... this could discourage many possible buyers, for purely economical reasons.

I dont know if the FreeRunner price can be changed at this moment, but now the FreeRunner is less competitive than the iPhone in terms of price.

Best wishes
