'Meet me at the coffee shop at 10:00... make sure you haven't been followed'So I turned up on this hot sunny morning, I ordered a coffee and an iced water and as if from no where a man in a cream suit appeared in a panama hat and dark glasses. He slid a plain white envelope out of his inside pocket and passed it to me discretely under the table.
Having met this man before I was careful not to open the envelope in public, I waited until later. We sat and enjoyed our coffee. We made small talk, but his rich accent made it difficult to make deep meaningful conversation.
Then just as he was about to leave and disappear in to the back streets he then mentioned a name....Samuel Fedida... the name didn't mean anything to me.. but he said "He has been recruited by 'The Center' " I looked him up later on Wikipedia, but still it didn't make a lot of sense... I will have to wait for another call I suspect......
Along with the photographs you see below were some brief notes... I guess we will get our spies to stay alert for when any of these new products will be appearing for sale.
This is the A5 Pennybridge with iPad.
A5 Malden Zip in Purple, also available in Ochre.
Filofax Malden A5 Zip iPad organiser, note the hole for the 'hidden' spy camera... in the back cover!
The organiser part is removable from the main case and it slides in to a pocket in the left hand side. The ring size is
And with the organiser being stored inside the left hand side. Note that the interior is a textile material not all leather, I guess to reduce the cost and weight a little. An elastic pen loop is also visible.
The front of the A5 Zip Malden, it is going to be quite a bit bigger than a normal A5, basically to be able to fit the iPad inside it. Think of it as being slightly smaller than a normal A4 organiser I would guess... weight wise with the iPad it will be quite a heavy item.
And there is a Flex iPad case as well.
This one is synthetic leather not real leather.
It does all the usual folding tricks of most iPad cases.
This post will self destruct in 15 days time Mr Philofaxy.... got to find out who Samuel Fedida is and what this connection is to Filofax...
