Okey guys,

this project is probably the future of N900. And Maemo.
What is possible:
  • Full Android compatibility - the Replicant project, see www.replicant.us for more details. That means NO problems with wifi, bluetooth or camera as in NITDroid project.
  • Upstream kernel - 3.10, there are a few "issues" but it can be fixed. If we want the true Maemo successor, it's a bad idea to port it with old kernel.

...

And more. Its now just on you. With new HW, with new open hardware, we could make amazing things.

This, is the next step in evolution of Maemo.
What we are looking for now, are coders (kernel porting..), graphics (some propagation stuff - website, addvertisments and so on..) and, finally, you guess right, money.

Now we need just something about $200 - for an experimental n900 for openmoko community.

If you want to donate, you can do so via Donation to Hildon foundation. Or you can donate the whole (but functional) N900, if you want.

Feel free to augment this thread. We are Maemo Not Nokia.

Really, If this takes off then the prices of those Broken USB n900s or are going to sky rocket! I have one waiting already for this project.
Nope, unlike original GTA04 we plan to use new spare cases and spare parts for LCD.

It will use original N900 touchscreen and display. You won't notice any difference before you power it up. And even after powering it up you should hardly be able to tell a difference between N900 and

Neo900

I get that this is still early days, but... Have there been any suggestions as to how the two communities will exist? Could there be any merges or will both teams remain as they are?

It will be "just" GTA04 board in Nokia N900 case - including the screen. Screen, case, keyboard, all these "outfit" things will be still the same.

The change will be the HW. (The PCB)

What kind of merging are you thinking of? Tearing down one wiki and integrate it into the other one? Redirect #openmoko-cdevel IRC channel to #maemo channel?
I don't think we need any merge. Just community members will change their habits a bit, regarding their favourite places to lurk and/or contribute. ;-)

Will I be able to use my old N900 case with it? I still have mine, although it won't boot anymore.

Yes! Probably you will be even able to buy just a board and also use the screen from your original N900 (and maybe camera?)

In theory yes. In practice it's completely undecided yet how the marketing will work.
