There other phones "in the pipeline"
Three variants of GTA02, 2 entirely new concepts aimed at
different target markets. Not smart phones, but phones nontheless.
I can detail these, each of which is in a different stage of the
product development pipeline, each has various pre conditions that need
to be met before they can proceed to the next stage of development, but
see my comments below about the argument clinic.

I believe that OM2009 slated for release in the June time frame has a
good chance of showing improved functionality. One Issue with OM2009
( the paroli work) was that it catered for differences between the GTA02
and GTA03. The design was targeted at GTA03 and utilized certain features
( like a hardware volume button) that were not present on GTA02. With
the demise of GTA03 the design becomes more focused and I would assume
more easy to execute and test.

why define terms before an Argument?
So to answer your question. Defining "development" up front ("i am
sure, we can spend days on end with attempts to find a definition of
> development that everybody agrees to, but what purpose would it
serve?") Serves a very important purpose. It sets the conditions under
which parties would admit they were wrong or that their beliefs were
falsified. It forms the basis of having a rational debate. everything
else is just naysaying.
