For whom is that list?  FIC?  They will produce more than 64 phones
anywy ;) Its all cool and nice that people indicate their interest in
so many ways - but is it useful? 

Once goes online, there will be a possibility to pre-order
the Neo1973.

Well, it's the OpenMoko wiki, after all.  So if somebody else offered
comparable open hardware, plus there would be openmoko support for it:
Yes, I agree, then that would fit on a 'buying list' in the openmoko
wiki. Otherwise, if there's no relation to OpenMoko, there's no point in
having this information in the wiki.

And yes, such device support can (and will!) eventually be provided by
the community, no problem here at all.  We _do want_ to support more
devices in the future, but we (the current paid development team) can't
stretch our way too thin resources on that right now.

It doesn't have Wifi either, does it?
