Neo 1973 is sold out...

I'll understand whatever delays or problems OpenMoko throws at me, or rather
us. As far as I'm concerned we're all in it together, and I understand that
we're all learning as we go along.

But the continual lack of clear communication from the top is so
demoralizing. If we are all in this together, then why are we being treated
like this?

I'm disappointed that Sean (or someone else) has not been giving us frequent
updates to keep us informed. Just three paragraphs every few days would be
enough for me to feel in the loop. Instead I'm left confused. Will those of
us who haven't been charged yet get a GTA01 soon or will we be waiting until
September? Or October?

What is actually going on?
