I got this at a price of 370 yuan(50 dollars) from Ali second hand(in China we call it "Xian Yu"which is the China version of eBay.

(The box is quite big and totally different from the modern device)
unboxing

(picked out from the box)

(things in box )
some docs in the bag

(two telephone cables,battery,sync cable and so on)
(and even a original tag sticker in the box)

here is the machine itself.



I replaced the backup battery and the main battery seems good and no need to place.
I thought I was so lucky to get the this as a new year gift.
And one more thing is that the device has already got a cf card plugged in it and only a text was on the CF card before I got it.

Maybe there is a love story behind it.Funny.

yep,I have already get a CF card reader and a Cisco Aironet 350 wireless card.(The wireless card is a new one with box and a driver CD like this Jornada. )My Wi-Fi hotspot doesn’t support 802.11b so I bought a Linksys befw11s4 at just 3 dollars for internet connections.Wait for the hotspot arrive and I will try to use it to surf the web.It looks really fun.

Interesting. Never knew Jornada 688 existed.
Is it 680 with different specs?

nonono,it is actually a China version of 680. Except the name and no dock in box all things are the same as Jornada 680.

And the number “6” represents luck .
“8” represents “wealth” ,”88”or “888”represents “you will be wealthy” in China.
So I think that is why the name is different from the 680
