since it is not developed at the moment, it is very difficult to answer your questions.

That is fine.

no news.

> Why not finance it like the neo900 ?

because it needs a crowd that wants to crowd-fund it. The Neo900 has thousands of N900 owners who eagerly wait for an upgrade.

LTE needs a different wireless module. The OPTION GTM801 is not easily available and is too big.
And, LTE needs a different antenna (for new frequency bands).

We can only buy 512 MB RAM + NAND. There is no 1 GB RAM chip that fits for the OMAP3 processor.

> Why not make a website for this tablet like neo900.org (for example letux7004.org ?

see second answer (crowd).

> If I would like to buy it what's the price and condition ? Is it 5000 euro

For that price we can develop and build a single unit fixing all the problems found in the prototype.

But honestly, your money would be better spent differently. You can buy more than 10 Google Nexus 7
tablets for this price. Or buy 1 and pay somebody to modify the software, e.g. install Replicant.
