Thats quite a good analogy you draw there, quite uniqe, low production
volumes, and not directly crowd fundable.

Well, I wonder, if crowdfunding a freedom phone is the goal,
maybe the neo900 board and batch could be used.
I guess it is alrady optimized in thinkness and rectangular
shape, if the board dimensions are known and a proper
display, and battery are available, maybe a case design
contest could shape into a larger batch of freedom phones.
