Psion Series 7

On Sunday I won a Psion Series 7 computer on eBay, for a cool £187, including postage and packing. This also included a leather case, and a Psion Gold Card (a multi-function card, including a 56k modem). Here it is, as illustrated on eBay.

I’ve spent the last couple of hours installing software on it, including a wonderful application called EPOCSync which allows me to synchronize my Series 5mx with my new Series 7 via IRDA (InfraRed)! Very many thanks to Bernard for that tip.

Also installed this evening were

  • PocketChess for EPOC (Freeware)
  • MahJongg v.1.21 (Registered) by Adrian Collister
  • Opera 5.14 for EPOC (Shareware)
  • psiMind (Freeware) — a mindmapper application
  • PDF+ (Registered) — for viewing PDF files, including the Series 7 manual
  • Street ’99 (Commercial) with the entire map of Edinburgh.
  • EPOC Text Editor, v.1.41 (049)

Still much to install (hoorah for Compact Flash cards!). I have a 256MB and a 64MB card.

I’ll write more about it later. Must get to bed now.

  1. Pedant’s corner – you didn’t ‘win’ it, you were willing to pay more than anyone else for it. That’s not winning, it’s shopping… 😉

    I’m a winner. And so are you!

  4. I thought the shopping comment was funny. Enjoy the Psion – I had about three of the older models during my PDA craze phase.

  13. Let’s be honest, I’m looking for help! I’ve had a Psion7 for years and I love it. Even Windows Netbooks don’t offer the same utility. But, although I back it up and it works fine, I’m concerned that one day I’ll drop it or something. So I’ve bought a spare (it’s actually a Psion Netbook).

    It’s in super condition and I doubt it’s ever been used. But, the batteries were flat and it’s lost its system. On bootup it asks for a bootable CF card orstart ‘rominst’. I’ve gone right through the manual and the websites and I can’t find how to do this.

    Can anybody help me with how to do this? I’ve got plenty of CF cards.
