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.
