The gta04-owners list has approx. 270 subscribers (may have some duplicates).
The openmoko-community list has approx. 1760 subscribers.

> 2) how many GTA02 units were sold by openmoko?

According to my estimates there have been sold approx.

3k GTA01 (Neo1973)
15k GTA02 (Freerunner)

Not exact numbers but I could extrapolate our own number of
units and informal hints from other distributors and projects.

Anyways, 350 GTA04 upgrades are just 2%. So it appears
to be totally feasible to reach the quantity. And, there should
be plenty of GTA02 cases collecting dust and waiting for a
new boards inside...
