So what? Those are still phones. Working, functional phones which have
much better specs than GTA02. User wants a free phone, user orders a
free phone, user gets a free phone. Without the need of owning GTA02
and replacing motherboard by himself - and that's what matters.
OpenPhoenux project provides full phone.

If there'll be higher demand, it'll provide new cases. Demand is too
low right now, so old cases are used. I can't see the point of your
argument in this discussion.
