Well, we still have not enough orders to finance a production run for another batch of GTA04 boards (with UMTS).

The Letux 7004 tablet prototypes are running well (as shown on FOSDEM and LinuxTag), but we probably would
do a complete redesign using a different display module. Then it may also become possible to add LTE.

But our project is still a wallflower.

If we can find someone who develops an open replacement firmware
for the Marvell 8686 that would be a really great step forward.
