I just based this choice on the discussion we had over IRC. The thing is that we
really have two directions that we can follow:
i) affordable and simple
ii) more expensive and with more tools
Within i), I think that the Nomad model with the design linked above is our best
compromise, which would cost something like 40 CHF (34.- + marking).
Then, within ii), the CyberTool would also be my choice. It would cost something
like 75.- (69.- + marking).
I fail to see if a compromise betweemn i) and ii) is doable. So we should either
choose our "selling strategy" or sell both models (which is most certainly not
Finally, about the proposed designs, I began with various slogans, etc, but some
told me that finding a good slogan suitable for all is hard, so applying the
same design as above to the CyberTool seems the best option to me.
In any case, I will ask Victorinox about multiple options to get real prices to
know exactly what would be the cost for series of 100, 200, …
