Unfortunately not. As already pointed out on that list, the
accelerometers error would add up itself.

Besides: Its only two accelerometers. You can do 2-dimensional
'navigating' with that, no more. No tilting/rotating.

Regarding the GTA-01-is-dead-issue: Sure, GTA-02 now means some
competition to GTA-01, BUT: Firstly, not everyone wants/needs the 'best
phone ever' with accelerometers, etc. Secondly, FIC will probably offer
a special price to GTA-01 owners and GTA-02 will surely take some time,
though I reckon if the GTA-01 is eventually out soon then GTA-02 should
make it most likely this year too, as hardware issues concerning the GPS
or GSM daemon won't change (others will ;D).
I am pretty sure FIC will offer that special price to GTA-01 owners
because the ones that are those so-called early-adopters will most
likely add to the phones functionality most. And that, of course, is
after all what a this product needs most and FIC would be very stupid
not to support phone development as it would degrade final GTA-02 sales.
