Is there anyone who is involved in hardware development and seriously believes that the cost of an upgrade board (which necessarily will have all the stuff like the LCD attached to it, cause they are not end-user replaceable parts) will be any cheaper than the cost of a whole phone?
The stuff that is not replaced is just some bits of plastic ...
Then you have to add in the additional overhead costs of handling a whole new item for sale, warranty and support issues, etc ...
Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that this will happen, and if you base your buying decision on a hope that this will happen then you should be probably be prepared to be disappointed ...
(All my opinion only)
