  • Neat Little Touch Computers

    I have a few small computers laying around that may be of interest to some of you.
    theyre made by a company called intermec, and the model is a norand 6642 PenKey.
    I'm guessing they were originally designed as kind of a cross between data aquisition and a small notebook.

    they are just little ruggedized tablet pc's.

    processor is an intel mobile celeron 266, they have i think 128 megs of ram and a 4 gig harddrive. (i swapped the drive in one of them to a 60gig and it worked just fine.. you just have to use the slim drives)

    the video is 800x600 not sure how many colors.
    they have built in sound.
    they have a builtin keypad with tab, space, backspace, esc, enter, numbers and arrows
    they have a builtin pcmcia slot
    they have builtin usb port (only 1.1 i think) but ive plugged lots of different stuff in mine and it all seems to work fine
    they have a built in modem (never tried to use one of them so i dont know how fast)

    the touch screen is the kind you can touch with your finger (i dont know what it's called)

    they run windows98 (i have one running xp, and it does ok, but i cant find touchscreen drivers or sound drivers for it)

    i had one of these in my truck for about 6 months before i finished up the epia and lilliput rig, i used my own mp3 software on it and delorme street atlas with a usb gps, usb keyboard, and usb bluetooth dongle.
    i had this this thing surfing the web, instant messaging, navigating and playing music, it's not super fast, but it did all of that stuff just fine.

    i'm trying to figure out stuff to do with these things.
    and there are enough of them, if anybody's interested i might sell some of em

    Just let me know..

    thanks..

      the one in your picture doesnt look as dusty as the one in mine, but i'm pretty sure they are the same model.

                these machines are not new, most are used and dirty.. but they are in pretty good shape. the ones with the broken displays are probably in better shape internally than the working ones.

                i will verify that the one with the good screen works before i put it in the box. that leaves you the two broken screen ones for parts.
                they will come with a floppy drive, a soft case and a car charger but no ac adapter (i only have a couple of ac adapters)

                i'll sell them for hummdingers price of 120, but you throw in 10 bux for shipping(ups). anything over 10 bux on the shipping i'll pay.

                that's 130 including shipping

                does that sound fair?
                my air compressor died, and i need a new one. so these things are the air compressor fund

                if youre interested, shoot me an email, i can tell ya what i know about these things, and should be able to answer your questions.. i have used one as a car pc so i kinda know what you're looking for (i think)

                thanks

                    i just went back through my email to saturday(even junk email folder) i cant find an email from you.. i'm sorry i didnt reply, but i never saw the message..
                    i am glad you found one though..
                    that fugi seems to be comparable to the intermec..
                    it looks like it has more buttons on it's keypad..

                      You still have these? I bought a set and thought I'd report on what I found.

                      First of all, I didn't get an AC adapter (unless I'm missing something here). But I did get a car adapter.

                      The two broken units are really broken -- like broken glass. The working unit powered up fine and runs great. It looks like they used to have an internal battery, but it's all dried up. I'm going to see if I can get a replacement.

                      One of the broken units powers up and works, video and all! The touchscreen doesn't work, but it looks like the driver's not installed. I'll try adding it later, when I get time.

                      The ad says 128MB, but I think mine has 160MB.

                      I downloaded drivers for my USB WiFi to a 1GB PCMCIA card, plugged it in (to the non-broken unit), installed it, and it works! Suddenly I'm surfing the web on this thing.

                      It doesn't have a CDROM (and I don't have one on USB), but I installed iGuidance from the 1GB PCMCIA flash card, too. I haven't copied maps over, but it appears it's going to work. There's no serial port for my GPS, though, so I'll have to get another USB GPS mouse. [Edit: It does have a serial port, but it's on the floppy drive expander.]

                      It also seems to be missing a mic input, though I haven't looked very hard. No biggie.

                      The screen needs some cleaning. Looks like someone lost the stylus and used a ball point pen instead. It didn't hurt the screen, but it left some ink here and there. Also no biggie.

                      This is a nice little device. When I'm done, I'll have a TomTom clone with a larger screen for less than $300 (including GPS and software). Add a data cable for my cell phone, and I'll be wireless. Suh-weet. Thanks, Moe.
