Phase 5 Digital Products comeback?
« on: September 23, 2016, 10:45:28 AM »
Can this be real?

https://www.facebook.com/phase5digital/

A few quotes from their posts:

"A new press release is expected in late September. Stay tuned !"

"phase 5 digital products obtained the registration number UBA21006796 due to the law and the regulations of the Federal Environment Agency by 09/02/2016. The registration number is used for all electronic devices such as Blizzard Turbo cards with battery button cell that is needed to be allowed to sell products with batteries legally and officially."

"Power UP your Commodore Amiga 500/1200/2000/3000(T)/4000(T)/CD32"

What's that about? If you look at the attached picture, you'll see that Facebook has verified the authenticity of the page. Anyone care to weigh in on the topic?

Good find! There's a few other pictures on their page, including one of an (albeit small) office. Guess we'll see! ;)

If it is real and they are not just another group able to use the name a lot of questions from some of us that lost a lot of money when they went out last time are going to come up. I know I lost about $800 in the pre orders for the G3 boards that were going to be released and I lost a CSPPC that was sent in for repairs. Lots of others in the same situation. I never expected to see that again, but the way some of this community reacts I could see things get ugly. I hope thats not the case. I would donate that same money if it meant they come back building things like they did in the past!

I am afraid those money and items are long gone. Most likely it's not even the same people, some of them might be, but who knows.

In any case, if they truly are making a comeback, then I do welcome it, they did create some really good products.

What a figure of fun - you can like him my information email so he can sue me, I'll go talk plunder my postage spot. At the bull%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@! no one will probably seriously believe? In Neuss one noticed already talking that technically has no deep knowledge in Gegenteil.
1.Er has no technical knowledge and no money. (Otherwise he would not such rubbish on Ebay list)
Today
 2.The phase5 products would all be redesigned as to present state neither the law nor the parts are available.
3.Selbst when having the entire design and content go along then let them bring him little. The rights has still Ralph Schmidt and is - should the hurdles 1) and 2) to be taken, not just watch, on the contrary. (Recall the PPC Rome history for WinUAE)
So you can only warn that money is better invested in each other Amiga developers before the guy. And I so do not want to raise to the level of a "developer" him - actually can not speak of a stage at the height

So they don't show high hopes...

Fernandez Gomez Salvador... well, Phase 5 had an employee with that name at the time who was responsible for handling RMA status on boards and products sent for repair... I remember dealing with him when I sent my BPPC for repair under warranty... all of this p5 return sounds too good to be true, it's a scam most likely...

Cheers,
Dragster.

I got my BlizzardPPC back from repair, too. I guess during the bankrupt some items got lost. My Blizzard came back from DCE.
But i doubt that this new P5 will get any progress on the lost boards. It's not the same company. The old P5 got liquidated according to the German Insolvenzrecht. Case closed.

We'll see if Fernandez Gomez will resurrect something worthwhile or if it will end up again in yet another miserable failure. Better don't expect anything. And don't pay in advance ;-)
But best of luck to FG, would be fun to see P5 (at least somehow) back in business.

These guys just might be the real deal. If you watch the video on their YouTube page, they show an outline of (what appears to be) a Blizzard PPC card, which gradually populates with copper layers and vias

They wouldn't (normally) have access to this sort of thing without the sources
