AFAIK, FIC and HTC are said to be sister companies. (Which strikes me as
somewhat weird considering just how closed HTC is but wel who knows).
If that is in fact true, I would expect more OpenMoko hardware quite
quickly... Just imagine, an OpenMoko Hermes with VGA screen 
And while I very well understand why one would want the Hermes to run
OpenMoko, I'm not sure if the first version would actually work with a lowly
QVGA display very well?
 Eten (which is believe is one of the rather few companies to actually
manufacture PocketPC phones besides HTC?) actually has announced a Hermes
like slide qwerty device with VGA screen AND GPS integrated so HTC will (have
to) follow quickly with one I guess.
