        error log.

Press releases is a circular
link with no substantive content.

Color choices - appear to be White or Orange, but nothing on the order
page allows a choice to be made.  Reports before the list died indicate
concern about this.

Carrying case link:

        Leads to the same page as the phone link.

No clear indication of level of software/hardware functionality on
either .com or .org sites.

No  obvious links or search results from FIC site at (which was also down earlier today). gives the impression that very little is
working.  Last "Recently Registered" project dated 4/18/2007.  Last
"Latest News" 4/23/2007.  Zero job openings in any category.

Things are looking bad for the good guys, or at least not real good.

On the plus side, seems to be quite a lot of press buzz, per Google news
search; albeit with substantial doubts raised about carrier acceptance.
I know this is a developer model and I thought I was prepared to jump
in, but am now in wait-and-see mode.

Hope to see the web sites and lists improve, and some better statement
of what functionality early adopters/developers can expect to see, as
well as better info on what does not currently work.  I would really
like to see OpenMoko/Neo1973 succeed, but can't bring myself to invest
just yet.
