„We have a new company, a new management – and a new booth“, we were told at Cebit. OK, the booth was white instead of black, but some of the managemenet staff and some of the girls were the same as last year ;).
Instead of being 50-50 taiwanese-italian Holbe Dialogue (in insolvency), the Italians now are a subsidiary of Dialogue Technology Corp., but more important for a „tedesco“: Flybook is flying back to Germany.
Last year their German sales man left Flybook, now they have a new distributor, Guido Crott of confidelis GmbH & Co. KG, known for www.myflybook.de. Older models are available in his shop, V5 at nearly 2500 Euros including Intel U2500 CPU and 3G (HSDPA/EDGE). Guido says to have V5 refresh model (with newer U7600 ULV CPU) listed very soon.
Guido is currently working on a new partner program so that the Flybooks will land in more shops all around Germany.
