in the name of the team behind Golden Delicious Computers,
I want to wish you all a Happy New Year and say thank you to those who  
bought a Freerunner in our shop last year.

The last year was quite interesting. MWe have seen many changes (to  
the positive and negative):
* April: Openmoko had to lay off their developers so there will be no  
GTA03 from them
* April: A new project GTA02-core was born to fill the gap and there  
has been a lot of progress
* June: we had invested a lot of work and efforts to make the Buzz-  
and #1024 rework service available
* July: we organized an Openmoko workshop where Mickey Lauer did a  
very good job in explaining how FSO works
* September: it turns out that SHR and FSO become the mainstream  
components for the Freerunner-Software, although other projects are  
also active. So we continue to have choice.
* October: nevertheless, Openmoko continues to produce GTA02A7  
(Freerunner) devices and we continue to sell them
* Feb-Dec: we have had a handful of Openmoko-Stammtisch-Meetings at  
Munich where it turned out how many Openmoko (and most of them also  
Zaurus) fans are still active.

So we will continue to promote the Openmoko idea i.e. a provider- 
independent and really open smartphone platform.

Let's see by December how we will have been able to surprise you this

PPS: please note that our target is not to sell as cheap as possible  
but push some money into future oriented projects
