Hi Sebastian,

Just a quick reply as I must dash.

Your draft design looks great, I really like it.

I'm not sure about the text about ethics of manufacturing - while it 
is assembled in Germany, the components are sourced from factories 
with potentially similar working conditions to other phones, they 
use materials that are sourced in horrible ways and conditions, and 
so on.

There has been some discussion here in the past about how we as a 
community absolutely don't have the leverage with suppliers (at 
least unless we were to grow a lot), so unfortunately I don't think 
this can change soon.

But this does look great - good work!
