The Fremont hub is close to my house, So as the phones come in I'll be
there for the grand arrival. As for the shipping details I believe they
are contracted with UPS, but I will check on that. Last time I talked to
them, they were.

Thanks for the quick answer, Steve.
2008/4/27 steve <steve at openmoko.com>:
just doing a quick check from UPS the shipment from the US [to Europe] for a
single phone would be on the order of 70 USD
For 10 phones the bulk is on the order of 160USD, which mean 16USD per
Could you offer shipping by the US Postal Service? Looking at their website,
I see that for instance, they have a service called 'Express Mail
International' that would cost $28 for a single phone, with a delivery time
in 6 days to Sweden, and a service called 'Priority Mail International'
which would cost $19 for delivery in 6-10 days.
The same services would be $51 for a 10-pack with delivery in 6 days, or
$35-40 for delivery in 6-10 days.
I'm sure many customers would prefer saving, say $50 on the shipping of a
single phone, or $120 for a 10-pack even if delivery takes an extra week
(even if we're all anxious to get our phones).
Geoff: I was asking about shipment to Europe. I think Steve mentioned
shipping to Freemont, CA because he was saying that all phones are shipped
from China to Freemont directly first, and then to wherever the customer is.
