This effectively leads the distro developement to the free/premium split that
most linux distros encounter. Free distro for the tinkers and for pay one for
the ones that find lack of defacto standards (flash+gps vector maps+windows
media...) support crippling the device. I believe the second group is major part
of phase3 target. The major question is will the price of the second option be
still competitive to what other companies will have released by sept.
