Well, there are (or were) complete phones based on GTA04 available to buy from Golden Delicious, so yes, OpenPhoenux has already achieved "production of any phone".

The phones consisted of GTA04 motherboards inside second-hand GTA01/02 cases. These cases were produced by Openmoko, not "OpenPhoenix".

Producing new cases is a matter of enough money, not of capabilities...

As already suggested by me[1], you also could go the other way and adapt the PCB shape (plus a few circuit addons like hw matrix kb) to fit into a widely available convenient existing case, more convenient and available than Openmoko shower-radio housing. Think N900 [2]. I know for sure there's a (comparatively) huge community interested in such device with true hw kbd and resistive touchscreen, even more so when the platform inside is so close to original maemo platform [3] that even porting maemo to gta04 gets into vicinity.
