Hi,

    I'll just comment on the SmartQ5. I was unable to find out if they did Copyleft hardware
    and could not determine if their roadmap was open, so it's a little hard to do a product
    comparison. Also, it wasn't clear if the device was available outside of china. Things
   like return policies, CE, FCC, spares, support for a community. Our hope is that
   the open source community finds value in the work we are doing to create a new
   kind of hardware company. One where they have a say in the roadmap. Otherwise,
   you are left with the option of hoping somebody builds the open device you want.
   As we get closer to launch

Well, I hope it will turn out to be much lower, because I don't see
how you can otherwise compete against the likes of a SmartQ5 or Cube
B53WIFI. I thought you were going Asus EEEPC (high volume, low price)
given your choice of the jz4720, rather than Gdium.

Or is this including a WiFi card?
