“Revo 16MB”

published 10/11/2000

Small, feature packed, convenient

Needs a back light

The Psion Revo 16MB is an amazingly versatile and usable hand held computing device. It runs most of the software that is available for the series 5 Psions, so there is absolutely loads of shareware and freeware, as well as commercial software available. In use, although the key board is small it...

Lack of a spell checker

As far as pocket-sized computing goes, for something a step up from a cheap databank your choice has always been limited to 3Com's ubiquitous Palm Pilot family and the keyboard-less Palm-style Windows CE imitators. Now Psion is having another stab at the market with its curvaceous new Revo. It's...

“REV0-LUTION”

published 12/01/2003

Very sexy, small, powerful.

Keyboard a bit on the small side.

What's so exciting, you ask? Just look 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...

Bigger than Palm V, no backlight

For those of you who like the handheld format (rather use a keyboard than scribble on the screen), Psion has always been a class leader. Windows CE just doesn't match the elegance of Psion's EPOC32 operating system. The Psion Series 5mx has been the one to beat. Psion's Revo is in some ways...

I genuinely can't fault it.

So you're looking around for a PDA with around £100 in your pocket, and you don't know where to start looking. The basic choice is between Windows CE, Palm, and Epoc-based palmtops. The Revo is Epoc-based, which I'd call a good thing. The Revo is a small palmtop, about six inches by three, and...

“Palmtec Hard Case”

published 02/10/2000

Sturdy outer case.

Don't put too many cards in else you'll break it!

Palmtec have always manufactured quality goods and this new hard case for the Revo is no exception. I already have their neoprene case which is bright, sturdy and does the job. The hard plastic of this model does a much better job of protecting your expensive investment. It is available in a...

“Psion Revo”

published 03/07/2003

Lightweight, easy to use

Not very good looking and quite big

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 pay...

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...

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...

“Psion of the times”

published 13/05/2002

A neat little organiser solution, very flexible

Limited Expandability, no backlight

I was happily wondering through Comet the other day (always something of a minefield for me as far as my wife is concerned) and happened to pass the manager’s specials desk. This magical desk contains items which are deemed discountable, usually due to them being end of line stock or simply...

Excellent functionality, durability

Size/weight

I’ve owned a Revo now for around 6 months and have found it to be invaluable, even if I will admit I originally purchased it as a nice-to-have gadget. The unit is durable and has stood up well to some fairly arduous treatment, and still looks (as one would expect) good as new. The main decision...

I've had my Revo for a couple of weeks (at time of writing), and so far I am really impressed. This is the 1st PDA that I have owned, and it is helping me organise my life a lot! It has many features you would expect, contacts, agenda, word, datasheets, etc. The Revo can be connected via a...

compact, excellent OS, good display, good software

none really

Never having owned a fully functioning PDA before, it came as a nice surprise a few weeks ago when my boss at work gave me a Psion Revo to play with as part of my project portfolios. Struggling with pieces of paper and bulky laptops just doesn't cut the mustard these days. Psion is perhaps the...

“Slim, sexy, and under £400”

published 18/07/2000

Relatively cheap, sexy, handy

Iffy Keyboard, difficult to upgrade

Psion Revo I can't honestly claim to have WANTED a Revo, because I got it for Christmas: but now I have one I might as well share it with everyone. The Revo is Psion's latest mobile PC offering, and having such a respected company behind it should definately serve as an encouragement to buy. The...

published 06/11/2003

Small, reasonable keyboard, connectivity.

Battery, screen.

First of all about my use of handheld computers. I have purchased computers for use in schools and this has included a range of handheld computers at the lower end of the price range. Psion 5MX, Psion IIIc, Psion Revo have all featured amongst many other brands. I was quite attached to the Psion...
