Framework V for the Psion and HP 200LX Palmtop Computer
Customized versions of Framework V are available to hand held computers, the HP 200LX and the
Psion hand held computer.
While the Psion version is new, it is running on a beta version of a DOS emulator, it is seems to
provide an overall better solution than the HP 200LX. The Psion machine's screen is larger and is
back lighted, making the machine more useful since Framework display 25 lines (CGA graphics) on
both machines. The Psion uses a touch screen to emulate all 12 functions keys making it easier to
interface with Framework. The Psion speed is about the same as the fastest version of the 200LX.
There is also a possibility that 200LX software can run on the Psion albeit details
are too fresh.
Framework files and applications can be shared between the Psion and Framework VI running on
any Windows based desktop making it easy to synchronize, update and share data with desktop
Framework V LX is a special version of Framework V which can run on

We recommend the Time2Tech speed upgrade from 8 to 16 megahertz
(available from us or directly from Time2Tech).
You can get a new machine with 4 megabyte of RAM which allow you to
run Framework V LX with no flash card.
You can get a new machine with 2 or 4 megabyte of memory and upgrade
it to 6 megabytes of RAM, again available from us or directly from
You can get a flash card, albeit our experience shows that you can
run most DOS applications from the palmtop's RAM with memory to spare
and your data is secured by the spare battery. However, some flash
cards can be easily plugged into a PCMCIA slot on a laptop or desktop,
files transfer easier and faster. Some flashcards are also available
with built-in modems.
When selecting a PCMCIA modem for your palmtop choose only a modem
with an appropriate chip-set. The only few suitable models include a
Megahertz 14.4 with a Rockwell chipset and few models built into flash
cards. There is no reason why some of the new Lucent or TI very low
power chipset can not provide an improvement but we do not any
information about them at this time. Make sure you are buying an
appropriate modem or you may discover that the modem drains your
battery even when not in use.
When using a modem, carry spare batteries.
Internet access from your HP 200 LX palmtop with a WWW Browser and
Email manager is provided by the
NetTamer Internet DOS browser
