That's why I think resellers in Europe outnumber resellers in other
areas. By using retailers, Openmoko doesn't have to inflate the cost
to the rest of the world. That way, only the people in the EU have to
bear the extra costs that such warranties incur. This is just my
speculation, of course. the great thing about the free market is that
if people want longer warranties, they're free to purchase from a
reseller who provides that. :)
