Do you need people to physically test the phones that are being run on this process? (:
I'm sure you could easily find several hundred volunteers.

Subject: Further details of theprocess as we ramp up production of Freerunner
I just received from Steve further details of the manufacturing process
we have planned. I quote:
Bringing a product to mass production goes through several steps. For
Freerunner, since we intend it to be usable by the mass market, we are
being very diligent.
Here are the milestones:
Design Verification Testing (DVT)
A 100 or so phones have been built for design verification testing.
These are based on A5. These phones are ready to enter testing. This
testing will include:
COMPLIANCE ( like FCC and CE)
When DVT is completed successfully to the satisfaction of all parties
involved, we start PVT:
Pilot Verification Test (PVT)
PVT is staged to go. This means we have the parts in the factory ready
to do the build and we are analyzing the results of DVT. In PVT we are
looking to perfect the design for production so that we get a good yield
when we decide to build a million phones.
The PVT runs are staggered: for example, we may build 100 phones and
test them, then make a minor change and build another 100, tweak again
and then perhaps build 200. Repeat until we verify that the product is
ready for true mass production.
Steve explicitly says:
"If the community would like, I will update them on each and every stage.
(I've already answered yes for all of you :-)
