Anybody ever heard of or seen one of these? http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-Jornada-X25-Rare-UNIX-Handheld-PDA-w-Sync-Pw...

The seller says it's UNIX-based. Just curious if anyone else has come across one of these before.

There are clearly CE elements in the startup sequence (note the stylus calibration screen), so I assume it runs a Unix build on top of a CE core.

That's not the CE stylus calibrator, the cross hair is round on CE.

Well the blurb does state that it's a prototype, and never made it into production. Maybe I'm off the mark, but looking at the rear label suggests it was tested/certified around 1997. (IK97) But that seems a little early for a machine that sports wifi. Although apple were starting production of airport 802.11b macs back then.

Nice buy Mystic-X. Let us know which of the features listed are actually supported.

Despite the features section of that listing, I would be surprised if it has built-in WIFI or WLAN. It probably just supports a CF WIFI card (if you can find the drivers, or if you find an already supported card). I think maybe the seller thinks it supports WIFI because of the ability to "Messenger" someone. But I'll bet it uses IR, not WIFI to do so.

Hi

the device has no BT or WiFi, just IR. The Messaging program uses it but i have no device that is recognized to send the message from the X25.
The Music Player also has an button to send files.
Theres no other file manager or any funktion to open files from the CF card.

I don't have a CF WiFi card so could not test this.
The device can read 512MB CF without any problems, have no lager card here at the moment.
It Plays MP3 files but sometimes it stutters, don't know why justs starts sometimes.
Sound is also not as good as I expected. If you turn up the volume a bit you can hier some noise

The PIM software seems to work fine. Handwriting is recognized by "Jot" and works fine.

The calculator is really simple, doesn't know PEMDAS (i think thats it in english...)

All Software is marked as Version: U_CONEY, no date or version number...
The only Date I found is on the PCB of the serial Sync cable and it says July 20 2001

I'm searching for a way to find out what type and version of unix this device is using, someone out there who can help me with this? I'm a really unix newbie
