A very sad story...

guys -- you are very kind but that is sad that there is no official
OpenMoko parts store -- it is like having opensource OS where you can't
unload a driver and load a new one - what good opensource hardware gives
you then if you can't replace it? (please don't follow up
disgusting this statement ;-))

Dear Steve

could you please research an ability to come up with some little store
for parts -- or in the worst case ask someone to come up with a wiki
page listing  vendors selling parts (or compatible) which were
used in openmoko's phone.

Selling accessories (2.5 -> 3.5 mm audio connector, USB host hub, finger
stylus, etc) would be a great plus as well -- nobody yet sure what
reasonably priced 2.5 -> 3.5 works in the phone, thus since point of
'sell' (or information in the case of wiki page with links) would
be great!

Thanks in advance
