I agree. For us users/developpers it will mostly be beneficial if we have a 
wider ecosystem of devices to use. Once the platform works on another device, 
some owners of that might be inclined to also help out OpenMoko benefitting 
everyone including FIC! The more people use OpenMoko the bigger the market 
for new devices and most people will prefer one that is supported by the 
manufacturer instead of a 500$ HTC phone with voided warranty anyhow.

Now of course if FIC delivers the device I want, I'll be more than happy to 
buy it from them! I'd even pay some premium over another device with the same 
feature and running OpenMoko considering that FIC makes it possible that we 
have OpenMoko...
