Well the goal of the GTA02 is to be a hardware without known issue, 
after that I am torned in 2 part, the one who say "you don't like the 
led, you don't want the led" and the other one who say "in your old 
motorola the status led was very useful, in the actual phone is the 
same, yeah you can live without them but if it's a known issue why you 
have to do that?"

Ok, let me be serious, if it's a known issue with a missing transistor 
let us know if it could be solved by a "normal" guy with a normal skill 
with soldering, if not then please, please make a small delay to fix 
this. If the issue is a software one it could be solved later (and hey, 
i'm buying a developer edition), if it's an hardware issue it will be 
there for the rest of my neo life and it's quite bad....
