Weblib – a library of Netbooks

By , 2009-12-30 18:19

I was browsing Facebook today and glanced up at the usually useless “Suggestions” box. For the first time, I saw something interesting. My cousin in France had become a fan of “Weblib”.

Intrigued, I clicked the link. It seems like a pretty interesting concept. To quote their website: “Besoin d’aller sur Internet? Pas d’ordinateur? Weblib vous en prete un gratuitement.” For all you English-speakers, that means “Need to use the Internet? No computer? Weblib will lend you one for free.”

I think that speaks for itself. Not sure what their business model is, but I hope it works, and perhaps we’ll have something of the sort in Canada soon!.

    Hi Mattiheu,

    Tnahk you for your interest in Weblib : no worries, we will start selling Weblib in Canada as soon as possible.

    Concerning your question : the business model of Weblib is pretty simple. We sell the service to companies that can lend netbooks to their customers.

    The Weblib service is always free for the end user : you go to an airport, a hotel, a restaurant, or you are waiting at your haidresser’s, and you can use a netbook for free. The professional pays in order to have a wireless access point (hotspot) installed and get the netbooks. Why? In order to attract more customers, to get more customer loyalty, and to offer a better service to its customers.

    By the way, there is an english version of the website (click on the flag on the top right corner)
