Psion Series 5
Owner: Tom Carlson
Psion doesn't make consumer palmtops anymore. It's a crying shame, because they were really good at it. The Series 5 is a prime example. The keyboard works great. (Well, to be honest, a few of the keys on mine stick a little bit.) The screen has a strong backlight. (Although it could stand to be sharper.) It runs for weeks on 2 AA batteries. It has 8 megs of RAM. (The later versions came with 16 megs and an updated OS.) You can stick a Compact Flash card in it. It can record audio, either by running a program or just pressing the recording buttons on one edge. And it has a touch screen. It runs the Symbian OS, which pulls a ton of performance from those 8 megs.
Yes, Psion made great little palmtops. But Microsoft is bigger.
