The general user to whom a device like OpenMoko could be useful currently 
likely isn't your average cell phone user. Mind you, the Neo can serve as 
media player, for which 1GB of space would hardly seem out of place. And 
neither would it hurt to have more storage for maps...

I dont think the RAZR is Neo's competition at all (I think the RAZR is a truly 
bad phone anyway, but that's for another discussion entirely). I think the 
Motorola MING and a bunch of HTC devices are much closer to what the Neo 
initially competes with, maybe even Nokia E Series or Blackberries. All of 
which retail for as much and more as the Neo will likely cost... 

Or to put your argument up side down: if you make me pay 350$, I don't really 
care for 10$ more, but you better give me storage ;)
