When the kernel problems are gone, suspend works and it is possible to 
announce that GTA04 works better after a few months of life than GTA02 
after almost 4 years of its original shipping date. That will be the day 
when most of the GTA02 owners are willing to place the order.

After Openmoko pulled the rug out, I was angry and didn't want to put 
any money on developer hardware unless I was sure. I use my freerunner 
as a daily phone and some of the hardware bugs still infuriate me. 
However I did participate in the GTA04 group tour since it seems that in 
many ways GTA04 is in better shape than my GTA02 was after I already had 
it for a year. Only place where I see that there might be a showstopper 
hwbug lurking is suspend/standby time, but I'm confident that it's a 
software bug or if not, it will be found before the group tour goes 

In my mind you already have created the best phone/gadget/toy/pc in the 
universe. Now I just need to have it in my hands with a working kernel :).
