This might be a bit naive of a question... But how is GTA04 any better than an average android or WinMo phone with similar specs and an unlocked bootloader?

You get the schematics and a description of all components. So you *can* write and modify the drivers without much reverse engineering efforts. And, there are solder pads so that you can develop hardware extensions. Or even order a variant with B2B connectors to change the display. So it is much more open and flexible and easier to modify.
There are also real community driven software stacks not under the control of big sponsors: QtMoko, SHR.
