OpenMoko Freerunner phones discounted for DebConf attendees

Hello, world. The folks at Tuxbrain have a surprise for DebConf attendees, with which they want to support the community and drive innovation and progress…

For €249 incl. 16% VAT (deductable upon presentation of a valid EU
VAT ID), you can pre-order:

– a “buzz-free” Openmoko Neo Freerunner phone (A7)
(“buzz-free” means it’s free of the infamous “buzz” bug)
– an extra battery
– a headset
– a debugging board (v3)

to be handed over at the conference. Please note that at the moment,
we can only offer the 900MHz version (EU, not US), but we are trying
to get our hands on a few A6s which will have the buzz fix applied.

This offer is limited to registered attendees who pick up the phone
themselves at the conference. There’s one phone per attendee. We
will not mail the phone, nor let others pick it up for you. Tuxbrain
are shouldering a lot of logistics, costs, and efforts to make this
offer possible, without any margin to themselves, so we have to take
these measures to prevent them from serving as a public charity.

Still excited? Then log in to Penta

and follow the link in the left pane, “Freerunner for DebConf
attendees”. The rest is between you and the web shop.

Please note that you have to order this well in advance of the
conference. The deadline for orders is 30 June.

If you have any problems, please contact David Reyes Samblas
Martinez (david–tuxbrain-com).
