Users in Hampshire, as well as other parts of the UK (I'm from
Portsmouth originally), may be interested to learn that you will very
soon be able to buy FreeRunners from us at Oxford Archaeology [1].

We special in sales to academic/research groups, LUGs and in producing
custom solutions based on the Openmoko platform. We have our first
shipment winging its way to us as we speak and are more than happy to
take pre-orders. You should also find our pricing to be more than
reasonable ;)

Email me @ Joseph dot Reeves at thehumanjourney dot net to discuss more.

>   Regarding the HantsLUG Freerunner bulk buy at [1]:
>   I've just dropped myself off the list, due to unforseen
> circumstances (someone's already bought me one). If someone else wants
> to take over organising the bulk buy, then I'm not going to complain.
> However, if nobody else is willing to step up to the crease, I'm still
> willing to organise it.
>   I've spoken to HMRC, and phones are zero-rated for import duty. We
> would still have to pay VAT on the phones themselves and on shipping,
> though. Shipping to the UK is $187.07. So:
> 10 Pack:                $3690.00
> Shipping:               $ 187.07
> Subtotal:               $3877.07        £1938.54
> VAT:                                    £ 339.24
> Total:                                  £2277.78
> Per phone:                              £ 227.78
>   If you're going to want me to post it to you, add a bit more for
> P&P.
>   Note that the warranty on the phones from the USA is a mere 28 days
> DOA, which may affect your willingness to use this method. Note also
> that the GSM900 version of the phone, which is optimal for the UK and
> Europe, is currently sold out. There's no word on when they'll be in
> stock (but I guess not too long now, and probably faster than we can
> sort out money transfers).
>   If you're signed up for the bulk order of Freerunners at [1], could
> you please mail me, <hugo at carfax.org.uk>, to confirm (or deny) your
> continued interest, and I'll get back to you with bank details.
