Neo Freerunner manufacturing status

Hi Michael (and Steve),

I'm surprised nobody has asked yet:

I know Michael himself has admitted that Openmoko has been historically 
bad at estimating delivery dates, but is there *any* chance on getting 
an updated timeline now that we have this news about the A5/A6?

IE: How long can we (reasonably) expect the design update from A5 to A6 
expect to take? Will the PVT take a week? Two weeks? How long will final 
production take to ramp up and start seeing units make their way to 
shipping departments?
