Psion Revo 3 'Conan' Surfaces on Ebay

Right before the whole smartphone thing kicked of, Psion (one of the Symbian founders) were close to releasing a third generation Revo PDA - while it never made it into the retail channels, a number of prototypes were manufactured, along with a unicode rebuild of Epoc Release 5 / Symbian OS. One of these is now up for auction on Ebay. I've been in touch with the seller, and it is a genuine sale and unit. So if you want one of the last Psion machines ever, head on over to Ebay, and bid on The Conan.

Read on in the full article.

I was never a Revo man myself. Series5 amd 5mx were, for me, the best ever PDAs and nothing since then has come close. The database app and the calander were outstanding.

But from the photos, this Revo looks a little Series5 -ish. Is it?

My sources always told me that Conan in fact had Epoc Release 6 / Symbian OS v6 with "Eikon" and *not* the Unicode rebuild (ER5u) which eventually went into the Ericsson R380 phone.

Apart from that, I'm 100% with you TANKERx.
