DIP Pocket PC Professional
DIP was co-founded by three ex-Psion employees, David Frodsham, Ian Cullimore and Peter Baldwin - their first-name initials providing the firm's name, though it got a more appropriate, business-friendly full name soon after.
The Pocket PC is seen broadly as the first palm top PC, being smaller than the manual it is sold with.
DIP produced the Pocket PC themselves, shortly before licensing the technology to Atari as the Portfolio, they continued to sell it themselves as the Pocket PC in the UK.
DIP would go on to offer three versions of the Pocket PC: the unit on its own; an Executive version bundled with an AC adaptor and a 64KB memory card; and the Professional, which packaged the Pocket PC, a 128KB memory card, a serial adaptor and cable, and the AC adaptor in a custom-made briefcase.
