Phase 1 (GTA01Bv4)

Why is there no usb 2.0? this would be a huge advantage, allowing fast disk i/o, even a vga dongle. User:baseline0x0 13:45, 9 Augest 2007 (CEST)

The CPU/SoC does not have USB2, hence no USB2.--Speedevil 21:22, 16 August 2007 (CEST)

Why no EDGE? See FAQ --Speedevil 21:23, 16 August 2007 (CEST) The speaker will be mono in the gta02 but the headphone jack will still have the potential for stereo out, correct? yes. The only change in the audio is to delete one speaker to make room for wifi.--Speedevil 21:23, 16 August 2007 (CEST)

GTA02 availability

This wiki says December, whereas Wikipedia says October. I'm guessing this one is updated more often, but a source (which the Wiki has) would be nice. --Lixy 22:17, 5 September 2007 (CEST)

Indeed a source would be nice. Basically, there is little information coming out of FIC. The information that has indicates that October is not going to be hit. (IRC, mailing list) December is a random date I picked that may be corrected by someone with a clue. --Speedevil 13:01, 6 September 2007 (CEST)

Well, openmoko.com still puts the GTA02's date at October. http://www.openmoko.com/products-neo-base-00-stdkit.html Lixy 17:32, 8 September 2007 (CEST)

"Phase 2" (GTA02, "Mass Market")

With other words, there will be a silent gap between now and december? Or will there be an nightly release of the software? Or can the community help with the discussing the design ideas? Dolfje 16:52, 6 September 2007 (CEST)

I've updated the page somewhat with best understanding of current dates.

The software of course stays available on SVN, and changes. --Speedevil 18:21, 6 September 2007 (CEST)
