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 ?
