As long as there is nothing like a GTA03, I have to wait. Stop waiting
does not give me the GTA03. So I will wait any time... hoping that my
GTA02 lasts a while.

I would pay the costs of similar but closed hardware and additional
100 - 200 maybe 300 EUR for the opensource and non-industrial approach.

I would like to see a GTA03 phone with better gsm sound quality, faster
cpu, umts (or something like that) and less stability issues with wifi,
suspending, graphics/X11 and rotating.
