Dominik,<br><br>Something similar has already been discussed here. See <a href="http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/community/2007-January/001242.html">http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/community/2007-January/001242.html

<br><br>Shipping is going to be worlwide, cost is 350$ + shipping.<br><br>Marc.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 1/24/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Dominik Smogór</b> <<a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org

<br>This alone makes it worth buying, what troubles me however is whether/when there will be a quality vector map software available for it.
<br>Is FIC in talks with some company now? I'm sure that OSS devs will put a fervent effort to write/adopt a free replacement and I'm sure they (we, If I manage to get some time off) will succeed, but it's the data that matters and I don't know of a resource of quality data that is public domain, esp. outside of most urbanized areas of USA/Western Europe.
<br>Getting data through GPRS could be a solution, but a largely suboptimal one from the cost standpoint.<br><br>BTW, <br>are you going to ship worldwide, will the phones be available directly in TaiPei area?<br>Best regards and keep the spirit high,
