Interesting! I didn't know about this. Mine says 05/03/2002 which I assume to be US format, i.e. 3rd May 2002. I wish everybody would just start and use the ISO standard of yyyy-mm-dd because it's far more logical and it's easy to parse whether you're used to dd-mm-yy or to mm-dd-yy.


no, it is the british format i mean, it is dd-mm-yy. dunno why
mmm or is that so only on the european (not UK) english ones? all my jornadas are european.. except the apache and one 728.. but that is 04/10/2002 so dunno

I stumbled on this thread today - never knew about the diagnostics mode. My fairly pristine 720 must have had a sheltered life for such an old girl - she was born on 09/08/2000 (if read as an American date then today is her birthday). Diagnostic reports as built on July 15, 2000.

Why they would use two different date formats; dd/mm/yy for BOD and month, date, year for diagnostic build I do not know.

well my first 728 says 24/10/2002 so that must not be the US format.. and yep it uses the US format for the diag build.. even says the country is USA

hi I cannot find the eeprom on my diagnostics page ( release 1.1) but has a build button that says diagnostic is built on April 28th 1999 in usa. I guess this is the DOB? I just purchased this one from eBay for 89£ .it was from a company that just left it unused in a desk. Can believe it as it looks completely new. I did purchase one from eBay in the States for $90 ( my first one) 2 weeks ago but it has a few problems . Though I have received some excellent advice here on forum and will at some point try out their suggestions( removing keyboard etc).I was so impressed with the whole concept of the machine and the good support here I decided to risk getting this second one and it really is excellent. If the build is 1999 it just shows how it’s not about how old you are but how you’ve been looked after! the other one dob ( should maybe read DO Burial!!) is 2001 and sure hasn't worn well thanks Paul

After reading the thread you started today, we now know why it says 1999 - it's a 680, not a 720.

yep ahem well what can i say ? sorry about that ! i can go for the swap i think but the cost is another £60 for the 720. But apparently it is brand new.So the actualu full price for the 720 is £150 ( about $285) which i guess for a brand newy isn't too bad ?

yep i was suspecting it is a 680 when you said it didn't have the eeprom option. i think 285 for a really brand new 720 is acceptable though for not much more there are brand new 728's.

My main Jornada 720 has 07/12/2000 for the BOD, making it one of the older ones.

Glitch maybe?
