Calling hand-held computers

February 1996
Management Services;Feb1996, Vol. 40 Issue 2, p31
The computer manufacturer Psion PLC has introduced a messaging application for its range of hand-held computers. Called Telenote Link it lets users connect mobile phones to Psion PLC's computers to send and receive short text messages to and from other people with a digital phone and a Psion computer via the Vodafone network. An intelligent cable, designed by Psion PLC, will connect the Nokia 2110 digital phone to the Psion Series 3a or the Workabout range of rugged models. The digital mobile networks provide a reliable and secure way of sending up to 160 characters or data of 140 bytes. Even if the user's phone is switched off, all messages are stored until it is switched on again and can retrieve them. It is also possible to prompt the user when a new message arrives, even if they are in the middle of a call at the time. The Telenote Link adds address book management, multi-recipient messages, groups of contacts defined by whatever categorisation one enters, smart messages for those frequently used exhortations and so on.
