Amiga phones, Amiga PC's(!), Amiga tv's, Amiga LCD monitors (, Amiga microwaves?).
So is this the much touted "AmigaAnywhere" -concept? Maybe it could be named "AmigaEverywhere" when even toothpicks become Amiga-branded :)

They are just dumping old stock.   Take a look at this and see who is not mentioned anymore: http://www.i-contain.com/partners.php

I wonder how these people value Amiga's brand equity, if any (i.e. how much does it cost to license the name?)

A few thousand geeks makes for a very niche brand nowadays, doesn't it? What's more, licensing across thinly disguised commodity products from China dilutes its value even further.

It doesn't matter anymore, once this stock is sold off, you won't have to worry about iContain's  Amiga label anymore.

Direct link to an archived page that shows what you're trying to indicate would help.

Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived.

So....what you're saying is they'll be collectors items, kind of like the X1000?

I don't have a URL for an archive page, but Amiga Inc use to be listed, but no more.  IContain losted it's license from Amiga Inc about six months ago.

Exactly. Those are the main pages I recall seeing before.
Somewhat confusing too would be why they would list branded products from Amiga and IContain in May 19, 2011, if the license was no longer in place.
Also interesting, is the comparison of the May vs current shop pages.

Shop page archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20110521191801/http://www.amiga.com/shop/
Current:
http://amiga.com/shop/

There are some changes, like the Christmas sale.
So, if Dammy is correct, then Amiga Inc. is selling out old stock, whereas Amiga Inc. tried to make it sound like some new viable partner was getting involved with them.
Hmm...announcing a new joint effort followed immediately by a clearance sale. Sounds about right. Heh.

My guess that is McBill took stock instead of cash for the license agreement.  I would wager that as soon as iContain moves the last of their "Amiga" label hardware, the icontainprotects will be turned off.  If they are having to go to alibaba, they just want a percentage of their money back during Xmas sales period.
