Psion - Organisers and Palmtops

Information and support for the ground-breaking Psion range of handheld organisers

Psion 5MXThe name Psion will forever be associated with organisers and handheld PDAs. The Psion range started with the launch of the Organiser I in 1984, up to the Revo Plus, Series 5mx and the Series 7 / netBook. Even though Psion withdrew from the PDA market in 2002, their products are still incredibly popular, and continue to have a huge userbase.

These pages includes a summary of the range of Psion machines, links to useful Psion sites and answers to frequently-asked questions.

We're proud to be one of the few remaining websites to be offering information and support for Psion users in the 21st century.

What Happened to Psion?

Psion stopped production of consumer PDAs in 2002. Psion still produces a range of industrial devices, under the Psion Teklogix brand.

The last Psion consumer devices, the 5mx, Series 7 and Revo shipped with the ER5 EPOC Operating System, from Symbian. Many of the newer smartphones released after Psion stopped producing handhelds includes later versions of this operating system, now known as Symbian OS.

Smartphones powered by Symbian included the Nokia 9210 , Nokia 6600 and the SonyEricsson P910, with newer handsets such as the Nokia N97 and Nokia 5800 still being powered by Symbian software.

Asus Eee PC picWant a Psion replacement? Consider the Asus Eee range. Pictured here is the Eee PC 701 - It's a little bigger than a Psion 5mx, and half the size of an average laptop. It has wi-fi, 3 USB ports, and is pretty powerful. There are ASUS models that run Windows 7, Windows XP, Linux and Google Android
