Make sure you don't misread Sean's announcement - Phase 2 refers to the mass public sales of the v1 device. The 'introduction' of the v2 device at that same time will most likely be in the form of web pages, not v2 hardware.
That doesn't preclude minor hardware changes between Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the v1 device, but I wouldn't get your hopes up (unless there are hardware bugs that cannot be worked around in software). I doubt there would be any major feature changes until the v2 device.

Are there going to hardware changes between Phase1 and Phase2 ... from this posting it sounds like that, just wanted to verify.
2007-03-11 Phase 1: Official Developer Launch
We will sell the Neo1973 direct from openmoko.com for US$350 plus
shipping. Sales and orders will be worldwide. We are specifically
targeting open source community developers.
2007-09-11 Phase 2: Mass Market Sale
Online sales will continue. We will also be available in a retail
stores and selected carriers around the world. At this point, we
hope your mom and dad will want to buy a Neo1973, too.
The 2nd generation OpenMoko device will also be introduced at this
time. We have something special in the works, but again, you will
help shape this device.
