As of 26 June 2008, OpenMoko started actually selling the device.
So, as slite said, when do we organize the money transfer, purchase and distribution?
I'd suggest a meeting in Metalab on Monday, 14 June 2008 at 18:00. Please add your name here if you attend:
Add your excuse here if you can't attend ;-)
- LordVan previous engagement :( (what is the price we'd get now?)
I'd suggest everyone who hasn't done so yet to add their contact info (obfuscated?) to the user page on this Wiki.
- I hope it will soon be possible to place the order.. (: -- Ra 11:49, 25. Apr. 2008 (CEST)
UPDATE FROM TORPOR: As of April 25th, I have 3 other people at my work (THALES) who wish to be included in this group purchase, but who are not yet members of MetaLab, so it is possible that we may need to order *20* phones. I will update this page with details when we know more. (FWIW: no need to be member of the Metalab for using this wiki. --PK 20:13, 25. Apr. 2008 (CEST))
UPDATE FROM SLITE: I just started a 2nd group, to see how much people would be interested. I started a thread on the community mailinglist where i was told about the group order here. Three people already mailed me who were interested, i pointed them here too. Lets see if we get enough. For the people who don't are members, some info on how we plan to organize the moneytransfer, purchase and distribution of the device would be usefull. I would suggest sit-ins at metalab for also getting known each other. --slite 11:13, 26. Apr. 2008 (CEST))
I'll also buy a "iGo Stowaway Ultra Portable" Bluetooth-Keyboard for my moko(See this page for a review http://wmexperts.com/reviews/smackdowns/bluetooth_keyboard_video_smack.html).
As i prefer a UK-Keyboard-Layout, i'll order from a British-Webshop(It is also cheaper than from amazon.at): http://www.addonsworld.co.uk/product.php/38270/1/
This will cost ~36.- plus ~7.- Euro insured Shipping(Every additional item costs 60 Cents extra), if you're interested in a group-order, plz add your name(Order will be placed as soon as the freerunners are available):
Now very soon
Mass production has finally started, according to steve: http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/community/2008-June/018575.html --Benko 11:40, 6. Jun. 2008 (CEST)
http://www.pulster.eu/ is now taking orders and will start shipping on July the 5th. I think it makes a lot more sense to order from them (or some other European reseller) than in the US, as it's likely cheaper, faster, and you get a longer warranty. -- Hjp 13:09, 27. Jun. 2008 (CEST)
First devices on the way to Trisoft/Pulster
It's now possible to order at pulster.eu for only 299€. But I'm not sure if there are really the goodies included!? (I wrote a mail to cpulster) Until 05.July they are in Germany, the Openmoko.com shop is open soon.
Actually Pulster raised theyr price to 329 € --Princ3 10:52, 4. Jul. 2008 (CEST)
