Slashdot post but no web store?

The rumors of the Freerunner being on sale have been greatly exagerated.

>From what I've heard, SOME distributors have been notified that
Freerunner devices are being shipped to those retailers. Retailers
need to have a product in stock in order to sell it on the day it is
released, that is what is happening now. The Freerunners are being
shipped to them.

For the end user, absoluely nothing has changed since yesterday.

The reason the Openmoko web store hasn't been updated yet is because
the Freerunner isn't for sale yet. :)

That said, Openmoko is getting a lot of attention right now because of
that article, so it's probably a very good thing to have some form of
anticipation building message or teaser product there to keep the hype
