Default FreeBSD on Arm

Does this mean one will be able to run FBSD on phones?

FreeBSD/armv6: what’s new and exciting? FreeBSD developer's notebook

I have ran it on my computers before but it's been awhile since the last time I used it.

It doesn't look like FreeBSD is ready for anything more than development boards. If you're a *BSD fan and want to try it on your phone, NetBSD is the one that's most likely to have more complete support for ARM devices that are more sophisticated than development boards. NetBSD is the one that's supposed to run on the most platforms.
