Sort of on that same note, though, once the design becomes a little  
more solid, building some additional durability into the phone would  
be a nice thing.   So many phones we get nowadays are expensive and  
break quickly.   It would be nice if the phone could be disassembled  
using torx drivers, and if you could replace the more breakable  
parts.   I don't think this is a practical suggestion for the  
developer phone, but sturdiness and maintainability really would be a  
good (and surprising) quality in a phone.   If this phone becomes  
something that people buy and keep, then spending a little extra to  
make it last longer might be worthwhile.
