Philips Velo 1
The Velo 1 was Philips' original handheld device. It weighs about a pound, measures 7" x 4" x 1", and use a 16-color gray scale display. As originally marketed, it comes with an AC adapter and a docking station to connect to your main computer (a desktop for most people, although my main computer happens to be a laptop), and two CDs containing additional software.
Like other Windows CE devices, the Velo has a small QWERTY keyboard and a 480-by-240 resolution monochrome touch-screen LCD. Its backlighting capability is useful given the rather dim display. The easy-to-use stylus--calibrated to your touch during startup--replaces a mouse. When not in use it conveniently slides into a slot on the upper right side of the keyboard."
Our unit is complete with docking station, manuals and software
