As Friedrich Nietzsche famously said, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". We feel that the Neo900 project is gathering strength after all the twists and turns it experienced. We're looking forward for the future with more optimism than ever, taking lessons from our past mistakes.

The Neo900 project is seeing some major organisational difficulties, which takes resources away from the actual technical stuff. Progress on that front is still being made, though, and this update details some of it.

I kind of agree and disagree.

Yes, it will (most likely) be pretty outdated in both hardware and software by the time the first unit is shipped.

But no, it won't lose its appeal, because the people who love the N900 love it for what makes it unique. It's feels like a true pocket GNU / Linux computer with a phone jammed into it, instead of a phone with some computer like properties. Add to that the fact that it has a physical keyboard and is mostly open source software and there's nothing else truly like it.

About me: I love the N900 and have one in my pocket right now. Even so, I have absolutely no desire for the Neo900. The original N900 still works great for me. ;)
