In projects like this it is normal to write that phones in Phase 0/1 are 
target to developers. It is other way to say 'help us developing 
applications for target users because we lack developertime for it'.

But when they will say that Phase 1 is for everyone then it will 
match 'phone is ready for using/testing' rather then 'phone is ready to 
be test machine for your apps'. If users will get Phase 1 phones they 
will know that software is not ready yet because it has to be ready for 
Phase 2.

The more normal users, the more complains.

     I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
