FIC Neo 1973 and T2/Linux

FIC Neo 1973

The ARM based, mostly open mobile phone platform from FIC.

The Neo 1973 ATA01 comes with a Samsung SoC, TI GSM modem and GPS chip, including:


The TI Calypso GSM modem appears to have problems with latest SIM cards.

Apparently the schematics appear to be closed, as are the GSM modem and the GPS chip. While the GSM modem is controlled via regular AT commands, the GPS chip can (at the time of writing) not be used with open source software.

The current software stacks does not yet perform optimal power management, resulting in battery life of less than one day - even if the phone is turned off but the batter is left in the device.
