Price of the Freerunner spare parts

The information about returns and defects etc needs to be shared. First,
however, it needs to be established or estimated. I haven’t seen a single
number from anybody on the demand rate for batteries or LCD or back covers.

Anyone care to guess?

Hi Steve, 

As resellers of few products, we always share this information between
resellers and the global manufacturer.

This kind of risk should be shared between Openmoko and resellers, and
they need a good communication to share statistics about returns and
defect parts.

Now, about shipping, spare parts ordering and cost, you probably need to
setup a kind of extranet where the resellers will find the special
price, customer's price, qty and where to get them (from a local hub).

Best regards
