NEC MobilePro 900: Not in the UK

Handheld PC News

Posted 21 years ago | News | Chris Tilley 0 comments

The NEC MobilePro 900, the latest and greatest Handheld PC Clamshell device has been out in the US for a number of weeks now. Today I spoke to NEC UK who had some bad news. The NEC MobilePro 900 wont be heading across the pond. At least not any time soon.

Speaking to NEC UK's customer services department, I was told that at that time there were on proposals or plans to bring the new Handheld PC over to the United Kingdom or Europe.
The customer services department were familiar with the device, unlike many HP staff had been in past communications, or indeed even Microsoft. The operator somewhat miffed as what he had to tell me exclaimed that the "large screen and keyboard features on the device made it the perfect PDA". "We've been getting a lot of calls about the new MobilePro device, but unfortunately at this time there are no plans to distribute it in the UK".

It seems that NEC need a little persuasion over bringing the device to its Anglo-Saxon consumer base.
