Hello there,<br>I am just a random developer, not something in open source or linux world trough. <br>As many developers over the world I would love to own a version of Neo1973 phone, with stable hardware and usable software.
<br><br>I understand there are many stumbling blocks to be overcome by the OpenMoko and Neo1973 developments teams to bring those products to the consumer markets, but because I am not a consumer I am willing to take some risks.
<br><br>I understand GTA00 and GTA01 will not ever be a usable platform due to hardware issues.<br><br>I understand GTA02v4 had some bugs found, and so GTA02v5 design is considered. Also I understand that the OpenMoko platform is currently not a very stable condition, but somewhat usable even from the GUI.
<br><br>I would love to own GTA02vX after its hardware has passed some QA, even if its not guaranteed to find all the hardware bugs. Waiting for a consumer release seems a little long for me.<br><br>I would like to propose asking the
<a href="http://openmoko.com" target="_blank">openmoko.com</a> to add a preorder form for stable developer hardware platform. Something what they would consider a release candidate. This would allow for developers just like me to finally use their credit cards, and reduce the amount of pooling required.
