The HP 1000CX

The HP 1000CX

In the last issue we published an announcement from HP about their new DOS-only HP 1000CX Palmtop PC. We received a number of queries requesting more information and recently got an evaluation unit from HP, so here are more details.

The HP 1000CX is a 1 megabyte HP 100LX without the built-in applications. It even looks like the HP 100LX. It has the HP 100LX black colored case and green Fn key (as opposed to the greenish HP 200LX case and its purple Fn key). The ZOOM, PRT SCR, and Fn features were left in tact on the bottom row. Missing, however, are the Date, Time, Cut, Copy, and Paste functions. The Menu key is there, but blank. The HP 100LX blue application keys have been replaced by white keys with the shifted values (!@#$^&().

When booting on the HP 1000CX, one gets the classic DOS C> prompt. Check out the sidebar on the next page for a list of the software built into the D drive of the HP 1000CX.

As the sidebar shows, the 1000CX comes with LapLink Remote, the basic DOS commands, and a few other built-in goodies.

The HP 1000CX was created for vertical market developers with DOS applications ideally suited for the Palmtops size and price.

The HP 1000CX is sold in lots of fifty to OEM developers. Users interested in single unit purchase can contact EduCALC (800-713-6526 or 714-582-2637; Fax: 714-582-1445) or Globalink (800-255-5660 or 703-273-5600; Fax: 703-273-3866).

OEM developers can contact their HP Palmtop distributor or a local HP sales office. Only 1 megabyte are available, but perhaps with a large enough order, HP would create 2 megabyte versions.
