GTA - Two models? Was: GTA03: New case? Bigger screen!

My suggestion here is that OpenMoko may design another phone - if the market 
asks for this:

- An OpenMoko for younger people who need the gaming controls Ortwin is 
mentioning as subject for removal.

- Another OpenMoko for professionals/business/older people without the gameing 
controls but bigger screen. Maybe there is one available? Surely the software 
shipped with this OpenMoko doesn't need include software which requires the 
gaming controls.

Any further ideas? :)
