and review the very first Psion computer - the Psion Organiser 1, our dream has finally
But were we impressed with this predecessor of the Organiser II? Read on
and discover what we think about this highly desirable piece of kit.
Many thanks to Kevin Fraser from Canada for supplying the Psion 1. We were
contacted by Kevin, a keen Psion user, who not only owned a Psion 1 but was also prepared
to part with it! After a few messages passing back and forth between us and organising the
shipping etc. from Canada to the UK our new baby finally arrived.
This new section of the Psion Organiser II CM, XP & LZ Homepages is dedicated the
very first Psion Organiser computer. We intend to explore every aspect of this little
beauty, not only its operation but also its visual appearance internal as well as
external, Jaap will be looking at its software and exploring just what can be achieved by
this early pocket computer.
It is, as you can see from the image, quite a handsome beast. Its black case is not
only very different from the Organiser II but also very stylish. The display trim is quite
attractive with its red and black outlines and you may have noticed that the keys, well,
they are even smaller than those of the Organiser II.
