This is a very 'chunky' handheld terminal, portrait-style, with a
small mono LCD and keypad beneath (full alphanumeric). Apparently it's
x86-based, running an early version of DOS.
outfit, who were taken over by WPI-Group (who also bought the British
Husky company), back in the mid-1990s. Basically we're talking pre WWW-
revolutiion, so even the Wayback Archive version of www.wpigroup.com
doesn't mention the PC/5000 or MicroPALM...
Does anyone know if WPI produced an equivalent, or compatible
Is there any pdf documentaion available on the web: a users-guide, or
even a MicroPALM brochure etc.?
I'd love to know what signals are available via the 'docking-port'
connector on top of the unit? (It's the only connector there is!)
TIA for any help - Mark.
MicroPalm = Florida-based maker of handheld-terminals (1990s) - info wanted, please!
Back in the mid-90s, MicroPalm (of Clearwater, Florida) made the PC/
4000 and PC/5000 handheld units.
I don't have any documentation - and can't find any on the web - so
I'm looking for:-
(1) Pinout of the 50-pin docking connector (3-row "D"-type)
(2) Utility disk with link software (MPCLINK.SYS, CONNECT.COM ?)
TIA - Mark.
