Although I am not an official from OM I think I can answer some of  
your questions. See below. If I am wrong, I would be happy to be

No. GTA03 development was cancelled last year in favour of the

These problems are now solved. There are either buzz / 1024 fixes  
around, some companies or nice guys offering them. And recently we  
have started to offer GTA02A7+ (where buzz and 1024 are already  
fixed). This is of course not done by OM, Inc. but others. But does  
that make any difference?

For the GLAMO there has also been much progress. AFAIK, the official server now supports it quite well. And the kernel has also been  
accelerated recently.

There is at least one public project: GTA02-core aiming at new devices  
like this (i.e. free&open smartphone platform). And, I know of at  
least one more project to be announced this year.

Yes, many. But probably not from the sources you have looked at. They  
are not that aggregated and said by an official spokesperson.

So there is no need to wait for OM, Inc. This is also the real benefit  
of that OM did open a lot of information and materials to secure the  
future of the Openmoko movement, even if the company does no longer  
participate. That is probably the best thing that did happen - to  
successfully seed an idea.
