Psion brings Bluetooth to Revo PDA

Announcement due in June, claim sources

Psion will be updating its Revo PDA next month to bring it up to date with the latest Bluetooth wireless technology, sources have claimed.

Now we know for a fact that the company is working on a wireless product, though we've seen nothing until now that points to Bluetooth or some kind of cellular-based networking.

Psion recently did the rounds of advertising agencies seeking a partner to come up with a campaign to market an upcoming product. The process was the subject of a BBC TV documentary, and while the product was kept hidden, the Psionites did let slip that it would be a wireless product.

That certainly seems to tally with the Bluetooth claim, cited by Geek.com. The site's sources also suggest that the new Revo will sport a backlit greyscale screen (long overdue) and a USB-based docking system (again, Psion, about time). Like the current Revo, the new model will contain 16MB of memory. It will run off a built-in NiMH rechargeable battery. ®
