Flash versions of the Vibez player with 4 and 8 GB capacity were announced in 2007, but did not materialize for a while. A 16-gigabyte Vibez with flash memory was reviewed by German computer magazine c't in early July 2008. [dead link] The cancellation of the flash-based units has been confirmed by Trekstor in e-mail messages to customers.
