I received a kind email from POS Ltd today informing me that they’ve moved premises, and would I please update the details on my website.
Once I had, I looked up their website: www.posltd.com and discovered that it’s had a complete redesign. Not only that, but they’re advertising a new PDA called the PsiXpda. Which, to all intents and purposes, looks exactly like my belovÃ©d Psion 5mx. I’m looking forward to more details being made available. Seemingly they are “comming (sic) soon”!
It appears that I am not the only Psion user to experience my Psion 5mx locking me out during a connection to the internet, via a Nokia 6100 mobile phone in my case. The forum on PDAStreet has a very active thread dedicated to this very problem.
A cursory read through the nine (9) pages of chat suggest that one of three options may fix it: First, update the TCP/IP Stack – files are posted; Second, use an application called Sink to establish the connection; Third, use an ISP which is shown not to cause these freeze-ups.
Once I have investigated this further I’ll update my Psion Modem page and post the appropriate files.
