The same also holds true if (and here comes the crazy part: correct me
if it's illegal) someone want's to buy a bunch of Freerunners (let's
say 10), customize them (with custom themes, programs, settings, maybe
even pre-filled data, some additional hardware, case mods, and much
more), and resell them, either to privates that want given features,
or to firms as a working phone, or for some specific application (for
example skiers, with custom software and theme).
Doing so would also allow to grow a family of hacks around the
openmoko (a version with a webcam? with build-in batteries? with r/c
sender incorporated? with wooden case?).
Just my two €-cents
