Thanks for the link.  I suspect the real issue is that Western 
government(s) put pressure on PayPal to do this and are trying to delay 
or halt development of the Neo900.  A phone that treats the modem chip 
as hostile (separate chip, hardware watchdog, 100% Free Software OS and 
apps) is not something they can easily abuse and they probably don't 
want it on the market.  I wouldn't be surprised if the buyers/donors are 
on a watch list right now.

Hopefully the PayPal issue will get worked out ASAP and the design work 
can be completed in Q1 2016.
