It uses the same processor as the HandsPC 1300, that is, 33 MHz Motorala Dragonball, and also works on Penbex OS. The PDA has 4MB flash ROM and 8 MB RAM. A nice feature in the PDA is its multimedia support. It comes with built-in MP3 player, and a voice recorder. The playback quality of audio is also pretty good. There’s also a headphone, which can be connected to it for enjoying your MP3 files. Plus it has a CF and infrared Interface, and a serial port for connecting to a PC. Overall it’s a good buy considering the number of features.
