Description NEC proudly announces the arrival of the Mobilegear II R730. This device introduces a full size 9.4 inch color liquid crystal with 65000 colors. An SVGA display unheard of before in a Windows CE machine! This makes surfing the web an exciting experience. Incorporating new options such as a USB interface, expansion possiblitie exist that never existed before. While like a laptop in nature, long lasting battery and portability make this the premier information terminal unlike no other. Instant start, instant display, and instant information - hallmarks of NEC.
ROM Upgrade Details Unofficial upgrade: The Mobilegear II R730 operates at the same speed as the Mobilegear R550 (or Mobilepro 790), hence the ROM board from a R550 may be substituted for the 730's ROM board, upgrading the operating system from CE 2.11 (HPC Professional) to CE 3.0 (HPC 2000). This substitution results in loss of use of the USB port. Furthermore, on some R730s, a low backup battery alert may activate as the R550 ROM checks for 3.0V instead of the R730's 2.4V power levels. The 2.4V battery can be replaced with the standard 3.V battery as well.
