Psion Revo

The Psion Revo, launched in Nov 1999, is a PDA from Psion. It is the successor to the Psion Series 3 and a light version of Psion 5mx. It is software-compatible with the 5mx and has the same processor but is more lightweight (200g vs 354g of 5mx), and substantially smaller (157x79x17mm). In comparison with the Series 5/5mx, the Revo has a smaller screen (480x160 vs 640x240 of Series 5/5mx) and also lacks a flash-card slot and a backlight.

The Psion Revo comes in two main variants, Psion Revo and Psion Revo Plus having 8 and 16MB of RAM respectively. It is powered by a 36 MHz ARM 710T microprocessor. Among other things, the hardware is equipped with a short-distance irDA wireless infrared communication system and a touchscreen. Like its bigger counterpart Series 5mx, it comes with a small suite of office and communications programs built into the ROM chips. Other programs are user-installable by using a 'dock' to send Revo programs from a PC.

SONICblue produced a rebadged version of the Psion Revo Plus called the Diamond Mako which they distributed in the United States and in Canada.

Along with Enfour, Psion produced two versions of the Revo for the Chinese market called the 618C (Traditional Chinese) and 618S (Simplified Chinese).

An open source project OpenPsion, formerly PsiLinux, aims to port Linux to the Psion Revo and other Psion PDAs. See the OpenPsion site or the site of Revol, which is an optimized version of OpenPsion for the Revo.
