Could you clarify a bit what exactly is the goal of this effort? Is it just
designing a line of "open hardware" mobile devices (that's what it sounds
like), and selling them to manufacturers?  Or do they also want to help
improve the software, like kernel, fso, x11 drivers, etc for the Neo?

My feeling is that the GTA02 device itself is in pretty good shape compared
to the software it runs. So how will the community benefit from a GTA03?
