So the OpenMoko will have a place to insert/install a SIM card? 

I don't really understand why the price structure would be any
different. Before buying my 8525, which is a PDA phone, online I went to
local stores. I had one guy in a local store tell me I HAD to purchase a
data plan just to even buy the phone. I knew that was wrong and they
weren't about to get my business. 

So I pay the same structure as I would if I had a non-pda phone. I pay
for phone service and txt messaging. 

Interesting though...
