omg. what very good 'goes without saying' (but i'm glad someone did) counsel... these situations where users will be needing affordable and available spare parts are inevitabilities of nature.  i second.

 Leaping in before being asked, and perhaps not exactly what you're announcing.

 On store stock.
 I'd like to see the basic, advanced, but also accessories.

 Something like:

 Basic $300
 Advanced $450
 Debug Board $120 (inc lunchbox)
 Battery $20
 Guitar Pick $5
 Case (black/silver, front and back) $20
 Replacement screen $120
 Pouch - $15

 I personally would also like to see
 Motherboard alone - $150
 GPS antenna - $20
 Internal subframe - $20

 This is both for cases where you damage your neo in some manner that is clearly not covered by any warranty, and for the cases where you might like to use the Neo for something it is clearly not suited for in its existing case.

 For example, glue a couple of webcams a USB hub, wifi, into a waterproof  container, and do stuff with it.

We are planning on selling this kind of stuff, but I really don't think we'll have the bandwidth before phase 2. Or at least another two months. 

Thanks a lot for letting us know you're interested!
