Rex


I always liked the Rex. I had a 5000 but always wanted a 6000. I never bought one in the end and then of course they've been discontinued. You can of course as with many things get them on eBay. The only reason I don't get is that I have no need for one at all. Sadly.

The form factor for the Rex is almost perfect. So tiny you can put it into your wallet as though it was a credit card. I do miss it, but there you go, if you don't need it what can you do.

One of the drawbacks of the 5000 was that you couldn't enter data directly. They fixed that in the 6000 but it still wasn't easy. The 6000 was extendable and there are quite a lot of additional apps written for it.

I think the Rex 6000 is still worth a look, especially if you have a laptop with a PCMCIA slot. If not, you'd need a really good reason to use it.
