The Psion netBook is a small subnotebook type computer developed by Psion. Released in 1999, it was aimed at the mobile enterprise market.
Similar in design to the later, consumer-oriented Psion Series 7, the netBook has a clamshell design, a VGA-resolution touch-sensitive colour screen, 32 MB RAM, 190 MHz StrongARM SA-1100 processor and a QWERTY keyboard. The RAM is upgradeable through the addition of an extra 32 MB chip. The netBook is powered by a removable Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, giving a battery life of between eight and ten hours.
The netBook runs the EPOC ER5 operating system (the predecessor of SymbianOS).
