It is a long-established tradition to bring along rare or otherwise interesting handhelds along to the PUM. Last year, we had a transparent Vii and a Palm Tungsten x420. This year, we were treated to a Dana Wireless and a – strangely non-working – Janam XP30:

Dana Wireless
The Dana Wireless is among the most boring handhelds ever – one picture says more than thousand words:

Do not ask me where this box came from, but it was in the locker in the center of the room:

A Nexave employee gladly handet it out to me – unfortunately, the machine didn’t power up. Nevertheless, here are a few comparison images next to a Treo 680:

  1. Why don’t you ask the guy that filled up that display cabinet about the Janam? ;-)

    The XP30 was one of the rare machines XXX – REMOVED – DO NOT POST NAME PLEASE – XXX supplied. The XP20 and the XP30 he brought along were test-samples with a little flaw in the charging circuit: The refuse to charge when the power supply is plugged it – they only charge when plugged into the docking cradle (and if you check http://www.janam.com you’ll find out that the docking cradle is really expensive…)

  2. All production quality Janam XP devices charge with a variety of accessories; the single (or 4 slot) cradle, a USB+AC adapter, or a vehicle charger.

    These rugged industrial designed devices are used by many businesses for a variety of applications such as; retail line busting, event/gate access, field sales and supply chain/logistics.
