Just look http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIC  or in anny other
languages then english. I wrote Sean yesterday an email
and pleased to add some more intresting stuff to:

Official is this article count as:
" This computer-related article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by      
    expanding it."

Could it be that to much production for other brands weaken the
popularity of the brand FIC?

End users are brand orientated, but IMHO this doesn't count...
for us it is important the quality of the hardwareproduction
and I have a feeling that FIC is a very good choice.

So before the wave on media response about the Neo we should
help with spreading some more informations about FIC - some
more details, some pictures...
Maby the decision of FIC to join/support/drive the 
OpenMoko/Neo1973 project and to develop and produce the Neo1973
could bring a popularity/image benefit for FIC? ;)
Just beside of the chance of profit with selling Neo1973s?

So expanding of 
would help.
