Hi Gaudenz,

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, …

What do you think ?
