As long as many units of the phone have been produced, it is not a
huge problem that the phone is no longer produced, you can buy it
second hand and recycle it. The older it gets the easier it should
be to get hold of one, at least until it is fit for a museum.

The problems previously explained, though, seem much harder (closed 
design, possible electrical incompatibility  and size constraints). 

But I was thinking more in things better documented, like nanonotes,
openpandoras, milkymist cases, etc. , not necessarily phones.

In any case I'm glad people is developing new cases. That's great.
