I would very much like to at least do a writeup and video about the 
OpenPhoenux, its community, its possibilities, needs and challenges.
Obviously it would be wonderful if I could test an OpenPhoenux, but is 
there anybody who might be interested in telling me a bit more about its 
history of the project, and the hopes for the future of open source 
portable devices/smartphones? As the original email stated, I'm based in 
Berlin, happy to do interviews etc in German if preferred. I will be 
travelling around a bit this year, so can visit people in other parts of 
Europe, but if there are any people active with 
Openmoko/GTA04/OpenPhoenux in Berlin, I'd love to hear from you!
Kind regards,
Sam Muirhead
