Kevin, that is really enlightening for me. I've never heard anyone talk
about why they like the pouch.
I was kinda thinking about making things like the pouch a give away at trade
shows and on the community list. Not for everybody, but for folks who were
contributers. I would rather give 5K pouches to community members who
posted great ideas, than ship 100,000 to people and have 95000 end up in the

I totally agree with you, Marco!
But I would like to add two important things:
-The Pouch is more important than "needed" for me, it's essential. It
will always be there, when I'm not using it, I also don't want a
"no-name" pouch, because I like that one with the word "openmoko" on it,
because it is simply great! I also like this "neoprene"-outfit.
-The MicroSD is less than optional, because here in germany (don't know
about other countries) you get an xxSD card really everywhere for just a
few euros. Another point is, that I can buy that size I want to buy
(depends on the money I would like to spend on it).
Two notices for optional gadgets:
-Lanyard: I don't think one with "openmoko" on it is a standard part,
and I like it :) (I also think it's a really cheap but great part)
-Headset: Every ones ears are other ears: small, big... and because of
the standard port every headset should work. I also thought that the
openmoko (GTA01) headset has no mic. Correct me if I'm wrong.
