I agree with that. The feeling i had when i read what was said on the
page was : the firmware and software are not ready but the hardware is.
If not the wording should have been :
" What you CAN NOT expect".
I postponed buying the neo, because the things i would do with it will
include networking (wifi) and i would really like to play with
'accelerometers'. But reading the presentation i was sure that hardware
was, for that version "usable".
i have some fears to buy gta2 that would be the "hardware test for gta03
-the_real_version) or maybe gta04 ?
