Liane write something like "end of april, beginning of may" somewhere at the
wiki, but I can't find it again.

I'm beginning to wonder if the phase1 and phase1+ (hardware refresh) is
being merged? IMHO I don't see the point of using $350 on a phase1 phone in
may and then $??? on a phase1+ phone in june if there is a significant
update. More information about the hardwarerevisions would be great.
