My Neo Freerunner Arrives

It's here! It's finally here! My Secret Decoder Ring Neo Freerunner!

When you open the box, you're greeted by a quote from the Tao De Ching. I keep that same book on my desk. How cool is that?

The quote seems to be about the empty hole in the bottom of the phone. Funny, I figured that was where the rope goes.

Here's what you get in the box: a stylus, USB cable, a charger with plugs for various countries, and a 512MB SD card. The back side of the green card says "Thank you for your efforts to Free The Phone."

The Neo Freerunner comes with the coolest stylus I've ever seen. On the top side of the device is a laser pointer and a bright LED flashlight. The bottom of the device has a clever mechanism which when twisted one way extends a plastic stylus tip, but when twisted the other way reveals a ballpoint pen tip. Not quite a Sonic Screwdriver but close! I ended up using the flashlight on this thing just a few hours later when a thunderstorm knocked our light out.

The display on the phone is really quite beautiful.
