Yeah it didn't make a good impression to show the boot messages, and a
buggy crashing version of the UI.  It really doesn't make sense, in
that the rest of us are getting better results with the software

I would hope there is a sexier follow-on product with even more
features.  But I imagine there will be increasing amounts of
competition too.  It's just that at this time, there is no other
readily-available Linux phone which has a touchscreen, 640x480
resolution, and GPS.  Those are the features which got me interested.
(Besides being fully open, of course.)
