Efforts Toward Marketing the GTA04
In the circles I've been in, this is called "outreach." We're trying to get excited about a product here so I'll just go with the much more used term, "marketing."
I am not a marketing expert by any means. I only wish to throw ideas out there and implement what I have time for. If there are any marketing experts, heck, if you're even just interestedm please help out! Please post more places where we can send a press release or start a discussion. Anyone can do this. When starting the discussion or writing a press release, the only experience you really need is the ability to write in your native language. I'm only familiar with English sources but anything will work.
Discussion points / significant features
- The GTA04 *requires* an FR / NEO1974.
This should serve as a request to get people who have these collecting dust, selling them online. Maybe this should be made more explicit?
- The GTA04 has vastly improved on every area of the FR.
Assure no bugs to receiving calls, GPU bottlenecks solved etc...
- The GTA04 is made in a proper factory in the EU, and of quality parts, in small runs - hence the price tag.
This will appeal to those of us who want things done right, not cheap.
- There are are non-free chunks.
Talk about how the FSF wanted the wifi firmware isolated so it cannot interfere with the O/S, though no prototype was ever made so it's just like normal. Firmware in /lib/firmware ready for anyone who wants to write a FOSS replacement.

This area cannot be done with a press release blast. Well it can, but I don't think the subscribers will appreciate spam. Ideally each of us can write a post about the GTA04 on any other FOSS lists we are on.
