Neofonie was founded by Helmut Hoffer von Ankershoffen, Nurhan Yildirim and Oli Kai Paulus. They built the first commercial search engines FIREBALL and PAPERBALL as studends at Technical University Berlin before founding Neofonie in 1998. Helmut Hoffer von Ankershoffen is CEO of Neofonie.

Until 2010 Neofonie passed most of its time under the media radar. In April 2010 it came to sudden fame for presenting a competing device to the much ballyhooed Apple iPad. The Neofonie WeTab runs on stronger hardware and uses a combination of Linux and Android as operating system. The WeTab will be launched in Germany in September 2010.
