Do you mind me asking where you heard this? I got the original neo and it
was definitely barely an alpha. I had higher hopes for the FreeRunner, as
did most of those who bought the original but maybe that was too much to
expect?? Or are your comments possibly directed at the original neo phone?

I checked out the site and there's no entry for Ireland yet. Anyone
interested in clubbing together, I'd be on if we could get the numbers.
