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. Processor: ARM 710 core running @ 36MHz Memory: ..." Read review

Psion of the times

AdvantagesA neat little organiser solution, very flexible

DisadvantagesLimited Expandability, no backlight

"...white box with the word Psion printed on it and a picture of a sexy streamlined little organiser. It didn’t so much scream out to me as grab me by the throat and strangle me until I gave in to its tempting offer of organisation and functionality. Psion has always been a name I’ve trusted for quality since the days of those first organisers which, to me, always resembled the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy from the TV series. Their ..."

Perhaps the best PDA of them all

AdvantagesSmall size, light, type rather than scribble, screen, software, looks

DisadvantagesBigger than Palm V, no backlight

"...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 better (the screen quality is much better). It's a Series 5mx shrunk to a much more convenient form-factor. It's only 200g in weight (not much heavier than my PalmPilot) and yet still manages to include a 'proper' keyboard, i.e. ..." Read review

Quality as usual from Psion

AdvantagesA lot of lessons learnt from the Sienna are shown here

DisadvantagesLack of a spell checker

"...Palm-style Windows CE imitators. Now Psion is having another stab at the market with its curvaceous new Revo. It's not as small as a Palm Pilot, but it packs a potentially bigger punch and has a very useable keyboard to boot. Psion's recently launched Series 5mx is a powerful beast but critics would argue it's just a tad too heavy and large for a shirt pocket. Until now, Psion's only truly diminutive offering was the Siena. A commercial flop, ..." Read review

Revo 16MB

AdvantagesSmall, feature packed, convenient

DisadvantagesNeeds 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 is very easy to type on. The screen is pretty good given the size of the unit, and is very clear and sharp. Pity it doesn't have a back light like the 5's, ..." Read review

How not to get Palmed off, buy a Revo

AdvantagesExcellent functionality, durability

DisadvantagesSize/weight

"...make by going for the Psion is greater weight and size, in return for greater functionality and ability to work on the move. Iíll also admit, I didnít particularly fancy the idea of teaching myself Graffiti in order to use a Palm - lazy I know, especially as I have seen how easy it is (an optional keyboard is available also, but rather negates the Palmís size advantages). The price I paid for the Revo was reasonable - roughly comparable to what ..." Read review

Palmtec Hard Case

AdvantagesSturdy outer case.

DisadvantagesDon'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 range of colours has a couple of sliders on the edge to open and close the case to allow access inside. It is padded inside and has room for a few business cards ..." Read review

Slim, sexy, and under £400

AdvantagesRelatively cheap, sexy, handy

DisadvantagesIffy 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 Revo is basically a stripped-down and updated version of their Series 5MX system, with emphasis on the "communication centre" aspects. As such, it ..." Read review

An excellent addition to daily life

AdvantagesSmall, light, fast PDA, a fair amount of software available,

DisadvantagesNo backlight.

"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 suitable mobile to the net which is dead useful, if you are away from the office a lot. The revo comes with a docking station, so you can link it and sync ..." Read review

Great little PDA, does the job required

Advantagescompact, excellent OS, good display, good software

Disadvantagesnone really

"...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 world leader when it comes to palmtops and have been making them for years. Windows CE, the new kid on the block is okay but isn't a patch on Psions own OS, EPOC32 and it shows too. The Revo is the natural successor to the popular 5mx series, although I can't ..."

I used to like my revo ...

AdvantagesSmall, reasonable keyboard, connectivity.

DisadvantagesBattery, screen.

"...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 5MX and therefore excited about a lightweight little brother, the Revo. Initially my response was good and colleagues heard me raving in the corridor about pretty much all of the features. "Hey, it starts up instantly." "The touchscreen is great, look!" "I can type reasonably well with this keyboard, great ..." Read review
