Motorola RAZR M — Auction

BN90ps4CQAA7xM9

Today we’re doing something a little different. We have a Motorola RAZR M, which we’ve held for the last six months or so following our review of this great little phone last year.

This is just one of a number of phones which graces Ausdroid’s storage cupboard and it’s time to make some space. As this is one of the devices we’ve purchased, rather than received as a freebie to review, we’d like to recover a little bit of our outlay (we paid $600 for this RAZR M), but we also want to do a bit of good.

So, we’re going to auction it off. Starting at $175, we’d like your bid, and we’ll close this off at 12 midnight tonight, 30 June 2013. Anything we raise over $200 will go to our charity, the Ausdroid Community Foundation, to help the families of seriously ill children at the Monash Medical Centre in Victoria.

What do you get?

This RAZR M is in its original packaging, and comes with original bill of sale. You’ll also receive two invoices from us — one for the handset purchase itself, and a receipt from the ACF for a tax deductible gift, which you can include in your tax return in a couple of weeks. The handset itself has two VERY minor scuff marks at the top of the screen on the bezel, but the screen itself is unmarked. The RAZR M has been updated to the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean available for the handset, and it has been confirmed to be in 100% working order.

To register your bid, please leave a comment below — make sure you’re logged in, so we can identify and contact the winning bidder. We will also be monitoring bids on Twitter as well, and will update this post from time to time with the current bid.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Can you see the actual timestamp
of this bid? I missed the midnight deadline by a few minutes and was
pretty sure it was only up to $220 at that time.

‘Put it towards a charity guys!’ was all my brain was throwing around as I read this article. I got halfway through it and seen that you guys already are doing this. Excellent job guys, the world really needs more people that aren’t self obsessed.

This timestamp is actually after midnight. You’re correct. We’ll remedy this.
