The company Geofox was based in Cambridge, UK, with an office in Austin, Texas. It was founded in 1996 by a team including people from Tadpole, the maker of Intel and SPARC high end laptops.
Sadly despite being a capable little machine, its lifespan was a short two years from 1997 to 1999.
Fewer than a thousand were made, and it is estimated that a mere one hundred survive.
This is the unfinished prototype machine that has a few design changes from the finished product, the most noticeable is the Geofox logo on the touchpad is not present, but instead marked 'Glidepoint'.
Our machine came from Satherley Design Associates who worked on its industrial design.
