Psion wins Euro design award

That must feel like Christmas

Santa has paid an early visit to the boys and girls of Psion this year - they must have been behaving themselves. The Psion Series 5 handheld computer has picked up a prestigious European design award - the iF award - from the Hannover-based design body Industrie Forum. The iF award went to the Series 5 for its "outstanding product quality and its conscious use of design," the judges said. It beat off 1,300 other products from 28 countries that had also been nominated for the award and has picked up other gongs along the way since its launch, including the Design Council’s Millennium Product award. Psion’s head spin doctor, Anthony Garvey, said: "This is a significant accolade from a prestigious body that will allow us to reach over 200,000 key customers and industry executives over the next year." No doubt the Christmas spirit has already started flowing at Psion HQ. ®
