I was another who expressed an interest but again to make a commitment you need to know a price etc and there seemed to be some confusion over the reeds bundle and if it even came with a charger etc

So why should i have a red face and if you'd like to come and give me a slap pm me for my address I'll make sure i'm home

I just like the idea behind the solar storage device.
I thought that was fairly clear?

And again, pretty clear?

We also finalised the Reeds option as a "bolt on" since most people were mainly interested in the phone alone, a good job too since no one would have got a Reeds branded version!

PS No one deserves a red anything, imho.

It certainly hasn't worked out as well as I hoped. I'm just pleased that we didn't end up in a position where Reeds had £3k of our cash when they went under!

Durrocom have certainly got scope for salvaging something from the situation though if they want to.

Reeds Condurro

Dear All - Let me introduce myself - I am the Business Development Director for Durrocomm Ltd - The manufacturer of the "Reeds Condurro" mobile phone. First of all let me apologies for the problems in shipping your order and assure anyone who has bought a unit that Durrocomm and Reeds are not connected (except for the agreement for Reeds Online to sell the unit - so the fact that Reeds Online has gone "belly up" does have no effect on your warranty. The unit is sold to a wide range of outward bound sports shops and the association with Reeds was an attempt to co- brand for the marine market - sadly we were not aware of the impending problems with Reeds Online. The initial order for the units was set up via the Reeds link, as always having a third party in the loop resulted in some miss understandings and delays, also probably not helped by what was happening at Reeds. We understand that Reeds were also "bundling" their own USB product with the unit - again something that we had no control over, but also appears to have caused an issue.
I am a keen watersports enthusiast (I have a small RIB and a Princess 45) and saw the need for a water resistent unit in that market - hence the launch at the London Boat show. We will have lots of new units coming to the market and I absolutely promise to share the information with Rib net first and continue to support the guys at Rib net and Alderney Marine directly and efficiently.
Any problems at all - please just drop me an email at richardb@durrocomm.com

On a personal not - if anyone need s a crew on any of the racing - I would be interested (I can bring the phones)!!

I hope this clarifies the Reeds / Durrocomm relationship!
Richard

Good response Richard - While I have not purchased now I am 90% sure to in the next 2 months . Good to see a company willing to make clear contacts & the full situation obvious. Good job & good phone from what I have heard .

I imagine Biff will be along soon enough to tell us what he thinks of his new phone.
