Openmoko have announced a scheme to sell the forthcoming Neo Freerunner at a discount if bought in multiples of 10 (US$369, instead of 399), to be shipped in one package. Group buying will thus save money on the purchase, and on the shipping. This page is to to organise group purchases by region.

For calculating shipping costs, the dimensions of one 10-pack is 435mm x 371mm x 119mm. The weight should be around 3kg.

Steve from Openmoko announced "Every 10 pack, will come with a box of stuff. 10 pouches and 10 head sets." So join us within a local group !




There is a group-buy page at MetaLab, available here: .. we almost have the full 10 slots assigned, and its quite possible that we will order *20* phones, so please register on the Metalab pages and let us know if you're interested ..

ps: Dolfje think it will be cheaper to buy it from Can anyone confirm?

Confirmation: From

Our sales price is 299 EUR. The idea of "open" is ours. So check our price calculation: if you order the Freerunner from Taiwan, it's 399 USD + 100 USD shipping + c. 90 USD "import taxes" inside Europe. Total 589 USD = c.380 EUR.

So it will be cheaper and we Europeans have 2 years of warranty when buying from Pulster, instead of a 14 days(?) for imported goods. You can read all advantages on

Note to gta02v6 waiting people:"The A5 boards have been reworked to remove the [LED] issue. So WRT LEDs a5 and a6 have the same power consumption". So, no problem? Also a quote from Neo FreeRunner GTA02 Hardware#GTA02v6: "Capacitor and resistor change A6 also on mass production A5".

As Telecom are using the 850MHz network for their GSM network, and Vodafone/northelia (possibly aka orcon) are using 900/1800MHz, please state which version you want. This may need more research, I'm not 100%; see [12] for more info


Based on info from steve (openmoko marketing) concerning weight and size, shipping via UPS will be about US$185 (NZ$24 each phone) to Auckland.
UPS are far from the cheapest, but (again according to steve), OM have a contract with them, so this is what we are stuck with

Someone on the community list suggested using [13], a shipping company that will re-post items overseas at decent rates. They claim US$66 for a 3kg package, or NZ$8 per phone. Of course, the cost of shipping the phone from OM to the shipping company has to be added in as well.

Purchase cost

As of 2008-06-21, US$369 is worth NZ$484

Duty/taxes/other charges

import duty on mobile phones is 0%[14], and GST is 12.5% so the GST added to each phone will be NZ$64; 12.5% * (484 + 24), cos we pay GST on postage too...

So, the total cost of a Freerunner as part of a 10 pack, will be:
484 + 24 + 64
= NZ$572

+ any possible charges to get it posted elsewhere in New Zealand

You'll also need to add on disbursement fees etc. If it's UPS it's not too bad (~NZ$40) if it comes through NZ Post then it can be ~NZ$120.

nicegear may be bringing some in depending on pricing from OpenMoko.



Status:10 phones requested, the required minimum (10 phones) is reached, but more buyers are still welcome to join.


Glen ogilvie made a suggestion, that we could use a company (e.g. someone's employer, who are likely to have easily found contact details and thus be trustworthy) to buy the phones on our behalf (after we'd paid for them), and then deliver them to us.
any volunteers? do any of you have understanding bosses/your own company that could help out here?
Dave Lane: I think Egressive would be willing to act as an intermediary. Contact me to discuss it...

We have a google group for discussion about a possible Swedish group order:, see Svensk Gruppbeställning av Freerunner. Please join the discussion!

If insufficient number of people, orders could be merged and remailed perhaps.

Domestic remailing with Posten as A-class mail of a letter (criteria: length+width+height max 900 mm) weighing max 1 kg, without insurance should cost 44 SEK. 50 SEK more for insurance.

If we end up with more than one 10-pack in Sweden, my guess is that it would probably pay to order everything in one shipment to one address in Sweden to save on the international shipping, and then remail domestically.

??? should organize the 3 x 10pack for Zürich
Luca Capello could organize the 10pack for Geneva.
Mathieu will organisze the 2 x 10pack for Lausanne EPFL CH-fr

All payment in advance (a 10pack will cost approx 3'800 USD).

Probably we will organize shippings, if we cannot all move to Zürich/Genève/Lausanne to get our Neo.

François Bianco is trying to create a new group of 10 (will be mostly for French Switzerland). -> The group moved to the EPFL group, which will try to reach 20 persons. --Fbianco 11:42, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Gabriel Ambuehl would volunteer to order the initial 10pack. <- still accurate ? -> Gabriel will not organize the 10packs for Zürich due to not being in Switzerland. We are in contact to find a solution so please wait until we know what to do. Order in Germany (each for himself or as a group, not clear yet) could be as cheap as a 10pack. We are in contact with and will be contacted form pulster about the price. We will contact you guys in the Zürich list as soon as we know more 10:26, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Alexandre Ghisoli will not organize the second 10pack, since the order moved in the Lucca's group.

Customs and Postage

I called the Swiss Federal Customs Administration and it seems that we only need to pay VAT (7.6%) and the UPS taxes as well (since the parcel will be sent through UPS). Thus I called UPS and it seems that UPS directly pays the VAT instead of the customer, then asking the customer for refund (plus a fixed tax of EUR13.00). So I think the following per-phone cost for a Swiss bulk order should be a good estimate.

Bulk Order USD CHF
Customs Value (Cval) 3690.00 3837.60
Postage 160.00 166.40
Value of Taxable Importation (VoTI) = Cval+Postage 3850.00 4004.00
VAT = 7.6% of VoTI 292.60 304.30
UPS fixed tax (EUR13.00) 20.00 20.80
Total Cost 4162.60 4329.10
Per Person 416.26 432.91

Figures accurate as of 4th Jun 2008 from UBS: 1EUR = 1.54USD and 1USD = 1.04CHF.


If we would ship Neos, here is the Swiss PostPac prices :

Description Size [cm] Price CHF TTC
Size 1 22.9 x 14.7 x 9.9 2.20
Size 2 31.5 x 22.5 x 12.5 2.40
Shipping Priority up to 2Kg 8.-

    Thinks that breaking the UK up into regions - at least outside London - is silly. There are unlikely to be 10 people in $your_town who want a Freerunner, so some posting of Freerunners will surely be required; see the talk page. This is the same cost anywhere in the UK.

Koordinátorem objednávání je Martin Šenkeřík Kontakty na mě


Odeslal jsem všem ze seznamu mail s informacemi k odeslání peněz. Pokud náhodou někomu mail nedorazil, urychleně se mi ozvěte, ať se nemusí moc čekat. Mohlo se stát, že jsem v tom množství někoho nechtěně vynechal...

  • 26.6. - V pondělí porovnám výpis z účtu se seznamem zájemců tady na wiki a od koho tam nebudou peníze budu ho ještě pro jistotu kontaktovat. Pokud se ukáže, že všechno dorazilo tak jak mělo, odešlu peníze Pulsterovi.

Na to jsem se ptal v České Spořitelně, a převod více než 200 000Kč je nutné provést v bance, za co si vyberou 200Kč poplatek, plus 1% z částky za zahraniční převod v EUR, avšak maximálně 1500Kč - což je náš případ, plus ještě poplatky Německé banky protože všechny poplatky půjdou na vrub odesílatele (snad to nebude moc). Tyhle poplatky uhradím z toho, co jsem připočítal k ceně telefonu.

A je to tu!! nejenom potvrdil cenu, ale také oznámil, že už má telefony skladem (ne však zatím k veřejnému prodeji, ale nám je připravený je odeslat).

Základní informace

Jedná se o hromadnou objednávku Neo FreeRunner (hardware - GSM, GPS, WiFi, CPU 400MHz, ...; software - náhled na připravovanou Qtopii) do České republiky. Cena 299€.

Protože se množí na to dotazy, vypíšu co je součástí dodávky a co ne:

  • Obdržíme:[33]
    • FreeRunner ;-)
    • stylus (pravděpodobně ten s laserem aspol...)
    • adaptér
    • USB kabel
    • 512MB SD card
  • Neobdržíme (možno přiobjednat):
    • obal (19€) - navíc 500Kč
    • headset (9€) - navíc 250Kč

Omlouvám se těm, kteří by ještě chtěli přiobjednat některé z příslušenství a už odeslali peníze. Bude bohužel potřeba v případě zájmu odeslat ještě navíc sumu za příslušenství. Pokud by byl malý zájem, mohl bych to zaplatit ze zálohy a případný nedoplatek vybrat v hotovosti (platí bohužel jen pro Brno a Zlín).

Postup registrace a objednání

Platí pro obě větve!

Tak jsme na kroku 3!

  1. Registraci provedete zápisem svého jména a kontaktu do patřičné větve odpovídající místu vašeho osobního převzítí telefonu. Můžete nabídnout distribuci do míst, které ještě nikdo neposkytuje.
  2. stanovena lehce nadhodnocená částka: 7500Kč za telefon, s debug boardem na 10000Kč na bezpečné pokrytí očekávaných i neočekávaných výdajů spojených s objednávkou
  3. každý zájemce odešle tuto sumu na účet Martina Šenkeříka, identifikuje se svým jménem a příjmením ve zprávě příjemci
  4. jakmile budou peníze nashromážděny, provedu objednávku tolika telefonů, kolik zájemců mi zašle peníze
  5. po obdržení balíku s telefony se vypočte finální částka za telefon, a případný přeplatek bude vrácen každému osobně při převzetí telefonu (lokální distributoři samozřejmě obdrží patřičný počet telefonů a peněz, aby mohly být předány dále)
  6. všem se dítko šťastně dopraví do rukou
