I have good news to announce. We have again made progress
towards our goals.

The first step is that the Openmoko Beagle Hybrid [1] (which is our
experimental and development prototype of such a new Openmoko)
is now working on the BeagleBoard XM [2]. We had to find a new
solution to solder the connectors (since the BB-XM already
has some). And to do some minor software changes to U-Boot. But
now it works.

Here you can find some photos of the assembly process:


We now have a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 with 3D Video behind
a Freerunner touch display!

And there is also good news for the GTA04 OMAP/UMTS upgrade
board. We have finalized the PCB layout and ordered (thanks to a
bigger donation) 10 sample boards and a SMD stencil. They will
arrive in 2-3 weeks. How it could look like is shown here (showing
a 2-layer mockup board and some of the core components):
