Hi all,
since there was a lot of discussion why the Openmoko community does not use a forum, I have asked the moderators of OESF to create one for anyone who prefers to use a forum over subscribing to the mailing lists.

For those who directly come here and don't know details, let me introduce some key resources:

1. Wiki
Please, please refer to the Openmoko Wiki since there are tons of information available. If you find that it needs improvement, please do so. It is a Wiki.
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Main_Page

2. Mailing lists
Many active mailing lists exist: http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/
For the newcomer, the community discussion and announcement lists are most important to take a look at.

3. Openmoko Freerunner aka GTA02
No, I don't know yet when it will be exactly available for sale. But there is a Getting Started page which gives the best introduction: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Getting_Star..._Neo_FreeRunner

4. Miscellaneous
- first to note for the newcomer: there is Openmoko, Inc., the company that develops the hardware. It is a subsidary of FIC.
Then, there is the open source Openmoko software stack which is a distribution derived from Angstrom (Open Zaurus). A "MokoMakefile" simplifies fetching all required components and building the complete flash images yourself.
- for MacOS X users, there is a dedicated page: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/MacOS_X
- many important things I forgot to mention.

So, please use the forum, write your questions, comments, answers etc.
