Well, to this one I had a guess that since there were European
resellers in the first place but openmoko.com itself does not have any
places in Europe, it was fastest and cheapest for the first customers
to deliver 900 phones to the European market as soon as possible via
the resellers. On the other hand at first there were no US resellers
so it was best to sell 850 phones via the direct openmoko.com shop as
they can quite cheaply post them to US.

Just guesses, but I don't think there is any conspiracy anywhere :)
