Yes, but I'm wondering who they think is going to buy the 03 when the user
experience for the 02 has been so poor and it looks like development effort
is being shifted off it when the phone is still basically in alpha testing.

That's not in any way the same as having paid development effort to get it
up to a base working state. 
And it's not support I'm worried about, it's the absolute basic
functionality and reliability that's at issue here.
