The Neo FreeRunner SAR tests at 1.07 W/kg GSM and 1.17 W/kg DCS. I would
say that's average, on the high side.

The legal limit 1.6 W/kg in the US, 2 W/kg in the EU, and really few on
the market get below 0.3.

I guess that having a setting to limit the radiations emissions at the
expense of radio sensitivity would be a Good Thing. Open Source choice is
better for your health. That's has a different convincing power than `you
can choose whichever keyboard you like', yes ?
