IMHO, that's just the sort of sentiment that, if embraced by FIC, will guarantee that this phone is not successful.
If a phone ships with a closed or otherwise flawed stack, a fix is just a firmware update away. Once you put a crappy form factor into the market, however, you're typically finished in the long term. Remember,
your competitors can iterate their software faster than you can iterate your form factor once units are put into production.
I want this project to be successful . . . let's not get so idealistic that we lose focus of the realities of the market.
In any case, the neo isn't about schnazz, it's about freedom.
