Due to the limitations of money, I think it's better to focus on one
product (EOMA-68 or EOMA-CF). For example, I think it's better to
launch several EOMA-68 before launching the first EOMA-CF because
otherwise the devices as Improv or KDE-Tablet will not have much
support (these devices are not compatible with EOMA-CF).

On the other hand, a EOMA-68 problem is that there is only one EOMA-68
(EOMA-68-A20), which is slightly powerful nowadays. I suppose that
many users expect a more powerful EOMA-68 (like Allwinner A80, Tegra
K1 or Exynos5 Octa).

Finally, how many EOMA-68-A20 need to be sold? How many EOMA-68-A20
have been sold? I guess until the KDE-Tablet (and other products) is
not sold, EOMA-68-A20 sales do not increase (since Improv has not sold
very well, partly because of poor promotion).
