Question Is there any INTEREST in a large Order

Hello it seems to me
that it is about time that the Irex Iliad will be available in Europe soon
and It would be favorable for me to possess one of these little helpers

I would like to know if there are perhaps more then 10 people that would buy one in Europe especially if they live in in Germany if so
i would suggest to do a large Order to grant low Shipping Costs

this is just a suggestion
replies are welcome

One up for Germany!

I don't beleive that we could save anything by doing a "mass order" however...

Shipping from the Netherlands shouldn't be too expensive, shipping it to somewhere in Germany and then shipping it out to the individual buyers would very probably cost more.

And in addition you'd have to set up some sort of secure payment system becaseu I don't think anybody is going to just send 650 Euro to a person he knows from an interent discussion group...^^

Depends if the person is willing to go through a reputable escrow service.

I am in Europe and I'll get one, but I don't think shipping costs from the Netherlands will be so high as to justify the additional administrative work of a bundled order.

Feel free to prove me wrong

Good point, if it's cheaper through you than direct (and you are willing to accept payment via an escrow service) I would consider it.

I should have said that before.

this has just been a suggestion

of course after estimation of an amount of users, which hereby should just
see this as an invitation to signal/notice

NO ONE is engaged in this deal
(@riocaz and others for which I don't take the orders), but buying an amount of more then ten devices could possibly save some money.
Perhaps there would be some bargain offer.
Preferable the user with the most attractive offer should buy the devices .

Maybe there can be a Poll about that(HOW MANY WANT ONE)
insofar as there is no new offer i will look out for cheap offers

You *****!!!

If you live so close by, why don't you drive there and ask them "mano a mano" what the hell they think they're doing...^^

Well...seriously...call them and tell them you'll be there in about an hour to pick up your Iliad...^^
And take some along for us...^^

I would be interestet to order one And i would drive to eindhoven too. I guess they cant deliver devices, because they got another testing contract. so all the manufactured devices are gone. Next shipping of iLiads to iRex will probably be in September.

All that talk from people living in Europe!
But how about those living across the pond?

I bet there are a lot of people from Canada and the US wanting one.
So why not make a poll for Europe and N. America?

Buying in bulk should also provide some sort of discount (maybe)

But first we need to wait for the product to be released.

650 Euro, I can`t believe it that is so much money

does anyone know a good reseller or a cheaper buy than from irex
man (and woman) i surely don`t like this price i think
it could be paid but i dont agree that what i get is what
i pay for and i dont care about shipping in sth. twice and
then get a new one (strange logic imho)

i want one for about 450 to maybe 500 Euro everything else is
exagerrated
