Thanks Erland,


  I'm getting more info on the audio performance. I'll have samples arrive
in a couple of days and test the audio myself.

Bass for music was reported as a potential weakspot. So, I have to listen to
it.  Then I have to make my input.

WRT the big CAP. I don't track the passive component changes on the board.
I'm marketing. I track the performance.

So, I'll have a listen and then make my input before we go ahead.

Regarding a headset, how easy will it be to get a third party (wired,
non-bluetooth) headset with decent sound for the Freerunner?

I believe there was some discussion on the kernel list about impedances,
which made it sound like many standard headsets would not give good audio,
because they have too low an impedance IIRC. I would hate to have a
situation where I would have to buy and discard many simpler headsets to
find one with a suitable impedance.

I reiterate that I am all for OpenMoko bundling 'commodity' items, but the
key thing is that standard items really do work well.

By the way, I guess the big capacitor that was needed to get good bass audio
output ('Can
we fix the audio for A5/A6/A7?' discussion on kernel list again) won't make
it into the Freerunner mass production?
