Want a small portable digital assistant? Think the Palm is too big? Want one that weighs under two ounces and can easily fit into a shirt pocket? Retails for under $150? The Xircom Rex 6000 provides this and more.

With the same dimensions as a PCMCIA/PC Card adapter, the Rex 6000 combines an LCD screen, a pen stylus and easy to use application software. These applications include a calendar, address book, to-do list and memo pad. You can store thousands of contact names and numbers and the Rex can notify you of upcoming appointments, meetings and events. Because of its sleek design and miniature form factor, itís easy to carry around with you ALL the time.

Synchronizing the Rex and a PC is also quite easy. Simply insert the Rex directly into a lapbook PCMCIA/PC Card slot or place it into a USB cradle connected to your PC. It can then synchronize with Microsoft Outlook or other PIM software packages.

Xircom has also created REX.net, a one-stop Internet information service that contains Web content that can be easily transfered to the Rex, during synchronization. News, stock quotes, sports scores and weather reports will be available for download.

The Xircom Rex 6000 also:

  • has a 240 x 120 pixel black and white LCD touch screen with stylus

  • features a chrome finish

  • contains 2 MB of memory

  • has seven hot keys for quick application switching

  • uses five navigation buttons for easy one-handed operation

  • run for up to 6 months on a single battery

  • weighs 1.4 ounces (40 g).

  • Measures 3 3/8" x 2 1/8" x 3/16" (8.57 cm x 5.40 cm x 5 mm) and fits inside a standard laptop PCMCIA/PC Card slot.
