Fear not, FIC actually wants to sell lots of phones. The Neo1973 GTA02 
will not have a camera, but FIC have said there will be many other 
models of phone running the OpenMoko distro. AFTER THERE IS WORKING 

It is a virtual certainty that some of these other phones will have 
cameras.  Keyboards. Whatever the market wants.

But later.
