well, that's certainly an idea that didn'zt occur to me.
but wouldn't support those reactionaries somehow defy the purpose of the  
GTA04 movement? ;-) otoh, if there's sufficient demand it could offer  
another source of funding.

but if nikolaus is ok with that (re-stocking the used GTA02 boards, that  
is :-), that's certainly solution.
two questions though:

- what's so hackable about the calypso fw? as far as i recall, it was a  
major afford to get an updated fw and make it flashable. and how much less  
hackable is the new gsm chip's fw?
- nikolaus: what about future fw updates for those closed parts like the  
gsm chip? not just new features but simple bug fixes?
