I notice that certain groups in the USA are consolidating for 10-pack purchases. Unfortunately, some of the regions being covered are bigger than some entire nations in Europe. While I can't be sure this is the case, I can't help but think that joining in a regional 10-pack ONLY works if it costs LESS to ship or pick-up your device.
Are there any size or weight dimensions known about the Freerunner packages? How much will the 10-pack weigh? How much will a single using weight? Assuming you found 10 people to each chip in for a 10 pack you'd get a Freerunner for $369 USD and save $30 USD. This assumes that the person getting the Freerunners doesn't charge you to ship it, doesn't charge a handling fee, doesn't screw you out of your money. If shipping is $10 then that drops your savings to $20. If (like I suspect) the Freerunner SINGLE unit costs about $20 USD to ship via UPS your savings really drops to about $10 over buying directly from Openmoko. Openmoko guys! Can you give us the specs so that those interested in bulk purchases can figure out the logistics of shipping versus individual sales and then factor that into the regions that will be used to organize bulk purchases? Thanks. _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
