I don't know how much enviroment friendly development
was criteria for the v1 - but this point would be nice
to consider - at last for v2:

OpenMoko will enable the user to use the phone much longer
and to add the software that he wants/needs instead of the
need to buy a new phone because of a new protocoll e.g. Wap.
This is already a big step for beeing an environment friendly

Don't get me wrong, I don't ask for making all better from the
beginning - but on the longterm, it would be nice to promote
OpenMoko/Neo1973 also with ecological criterias.

Like: Beeing greener then the Greenphone ;)

Supporting small companies to repair e.g. display demanges 
with different display types and a non-propritary battery 
format would help that the live-time of a Neo would be 
longer than the 12-24 month crap with included engineered 
end of live shortly after warannty.

No keyboard is a good design to be able to use it for
a longer time :)

So avoiding using high toxical chemicals for the production
it the one aspect - having a lower resources consumption
with a longer livetime another.
