Credit Card sized PDAs
Four different PDAs, the Franklin Rex, Xircom Rex (5000), Rex 6000 and Oregon Scientific PDA293. Of course all the Rex models are constrained by the PCMCIA standard and size where the Oregon is not, and, as a result, I think that the Rex models would fit in...

Oregon Scientific PDA293 main screen
I have to say that it is a slightly strange looking main screen. Not bad mind you, but different from what I might have expected. Everything seems to work though and I'll be posting some more in depth screen shots of the individual functions of each area so...

A closer look at the Oregon Scientific PDA293
  So the Oregon Scientific PDA is actually a touch screen with a stylus. According to the manual it doesn't look like there's a way to add any additional functionality to the device.

Well you won't see an ad like that these days!
  Yep, that's from an age that has passed now. No more ads like that I'm guessing!

These were some good ideas for Rex 6000 hardware hacks
Of course I doubt very much that they'll go anywhere now, but they were interesting and had some potential. Take a look for yourself here .

Rex 6000 and Oregon Scientific PDA293
  Side by side, you can see the PCMCIA connector for the Rex 6000 against the thicker Oregon PDA, which does not operate as a PCMCIA card.   Rex 6000 and the Oregon face up. Although this picture is slightly skewed you can see that the Rex is smaller. The f...

Oregon Scientific PDA293 boots up
So it works! That's good to know. I've reset the date and time and I'll be checking out the rest soon enough!

Oregon Scientific Unboxing
Well look at that! A new PDA! New to me that is. Not actually new at all. I was looking for credit card sized keyboards that I might be able to get to work with a Rex, but stumbled over this. So I got it. Expect more stuff about this soon as I get it up and...

Now that's a good idea for a Rex 6000 case
And it might take my two 6000's as well, rather than some post it notes. I've found a few of these cases on eBay so I may grab one soon.

So what's next on the PDAT front then?
Well, now that I've managed to get PDAT running on my old Libretto, and it will export an actual .prc (Palm OS app) file, and what's more it'll beam that on to a PDA over infrared too. So that's pretty good. But what's next? I've been thinking about what I ...

This guy build a community replacement for the Rex.net service, but it's gone now
Even so I think that this was a pretty impressive achievement for this guy . Building a community based replacement for the rex.net service can't have been easy. Of course it's gone now but as I was digging around for Rex stuff I found it and thought it not...
