After my Palm m100 packed up, I nicked my husbands abandoned Psion Revo to use as he was given the new Ipaq from work. At first glance, it’s not very attractive and compact compared to the palm series so I was not used to carrying it around at first but it was better than having to ... Read review

Psion Revo 8MB

The Psion Revo is a remarkably powerful, feature-rich and lightweight PDA. An interesting ... more

alternative to Palm or Pocket PC organisers, the
Psion is stylish and slim and has a high-speed
processor and built-in long-life batteries.The
Revo is relatively simple to set up. Connect the
AC adapter to the serial cable (the power cord
does not plug into the docking station), hook up
the serial cable to your PC, open the Revo's case
and slide the Revo into the docking station. (The
Revo cannot fit into the docking station unless
the case is open.) A green LED confirms that the
Revo is properly docked and a red LED indicates
that the battery is fast charging. The battery
charges to 85 per cent capacity in just 1.5 hours
and fully charges in four hours. The charged
battery lasts about 12 hours.The Revo is based
along the same lines as earlier Psion models, but
with considerable cosmetic and technical
improvements. You operate this organiser with the
14 touch-sensitive buttons that border its screen
or by using the stylus to tap onscreen buttons and
menus. Psion has made every effort to keep the
operational controls above the keyboard, thus
maximising the space available for keys. Still,
typing on this small keyboard requires much
getting used to, and the keys' tactile feedback is
not very satisfying.Testing for this review, it
was possible to type memos, make appointments, add
addresses and create a sample spreadsheet using
the Psion's built-in applications. Agenda and
contact information automatically synchronises
with your PC. For other files, such as those made
using the Psion's surprisingly advanced word
processor and spreadsheet applications, the PsiWin
software transfers and converts the files to a
PC-compatible format, such as Microsoft Word or
Excel. The Revo's PsiWin software is also
compatible with Lotus SmartSuite, WordPerfect,
dBASE and more.Psion licences its EPOC operating
system from Symbian, so the interface is not as
instantly obvious as with a Microsoft Pocket
PC/Handheld PC based device. However, the steps to
perform tasks are relatively intuitive. The Revo
is accompanied by an extensive handbook that
provides a detailed introduction to the
comprehensive suite of PIM applications and check
out the CD-ROM for additional utilities and
tools.The Revo's built-in applications are Calc,
Time, Word, Data, Sheet and Cascade. Additional
applications include Today View, Agenda, Contacts,
Phone and Jotter. The Revo also supports e-mail,
SMS messaging, Web browsing, PC synchronisation
and connections to compatible mobile phones
through its infrared port and an optional travel
modem. If you are looking for an alternative to
both Pocket PC and Palm OS organisers, consider
the Psion Revo.Also available for the Revo is a
collection of Psion Accessories and Psion Software

Psion Revo Plus 16MB

Psion Revo Plus 16MB

The Psion Revo Plus, looks remarkably similar to its sister product, the Revo. It also ... more

shares many of its characteristics, being a
powerful, feature-rich, and lightweight PDA. The
most notable differences from the Revo are the
inclusion of an extra 8Mb of memory (making 16Mb
in total) and the addition of some Web browsing
software, for both standard Web pages in the form
of the highly respected Opera Web browser and WAP
(wireless application protocol) pages, more
commonly associated with the new breed of mobile
phones.An interesting alternative to Palm or

Psion Revo

AdvantagesLightweight, easy to use

DisadvantagesNot very good looking and quite big

"...I nicked my husbands abandoned Psion Revo to use as he was given the new Ipaq from work. At first glance, it’s not very attractive and compact compared to the palm series so I was not used to carrying it around at first but it was better than having to pay £100+ for a new one as this one was still in perfect working condition (after my husband had used it for 4 years). He bought this because it was a special staff deal at work, £100 when ..." Read review

So good that it's, ahem, Revo-lutionary.

AdvantagesLinks to common PC apps; excellent communications; userfriendly; ergonomic

DisadvantagesI genuinely can't fault it.

"...touch-screen organiser has. But Psion had to include a touch-screen, didn't they? Returning momentarily to the keyboard, I have to say that the Revo has the best keyboard of its size that I have ever seen; it's probably only bettered at all by that of the Series 5, which is in any case far larger. The keys are about 70% the width of normal PC keys, and one key starts almost where the last ends - Psion have essentially condensed a laptop keyboard into ..." Read review

REV0-LUTION

AdvantagesVery sexy, small, powerful.

DisadvantagesKeyboard a bit on the small side.

"...at the picture -- this Psion is actually smaller and is, in my opinion, the coolest looking PDA around, bar none. I mean, look at the dark blue casing accented in silver -- a sexier machine you will not find! This product is being marketed by Psion to go directly against Palm Computing Inc's Palm V. In fact, the Psion is actually only slightly bigger than the Palm V, and fits in your pocket quite easily. Blue meanie About the size of a ..." Read review

Neat and cost effective

AdvantagesSmall, docking station, Net & Email, 8 or 16 mb, Quick, Sync with mobile & PC

DisadvantagesA little flimsy, Smaller screen than s5, No backlight, Mono, No dictate

"I bought my Psion Revo just before Christmas, and have found it an extreamly usefull tool in organising my home and work life. I needed to get my (getting more and more) busy life organised, and I had looked at a lot of PDA's before deciding to go with the Revo. Without waffling too much, here are /my/ pro's and con's about the Revo: Pro's - * It's small - Considering it's got a full (usable) keyboard, this is a mirical! With the clever ..." Read review

Psion Revo, Fully Uncovered.

AdvantagesLots of Software, Light, Compact, excellent design

DisadvantagesBacklight? and memory prob, besides that its amazing PDA

"Psion Revo I have bought my first Psion Revo on the market, cost me only £80, and that was cheap then. I did not have the Sync Software by Symbian though i have managed to find and download it on the internet instead of paying £39 for it. So, finally, i had a PDA Psion Revo, Docking Station with it, and an Installed Synchronization software. Specs: Size: 6.18" x 3.11" x .43" in Weight: 7.05oz.
