|At the left you can see the compartment for the CR2030 backup battery and where the reset hole is.|
To the right is the CF-Card compartment and the storage for the stylus.(Shown partially inserted)
On the top edge you can see the external buttons for the voice recorder application. The sound quality isn't anything to brag about, though.

|Production year: 1997||OS: EPOC/Symbian|
|Type: PDA||Speed: 18MHz|
|RAM: 8MB||ROM: 6MB||Display: None|
Of the 8MB RAM (it also came in a 4MB version, which was discontinued rather soon) about 1MB is used by the OS and automatically created files. The rest is shared between running programs and user files. And unlike many other machines, there was no need to define a 'RAMdisk'.
The touchscreen membrane is slightly larger than the LCD, to encompass the icons at either side of the screen.
As nothing is ever perfect, these machines, too, had their faults. The ribbon-cable connecting the screen to the mainboard has a flaw which tends to make it break at a certain point(usually, the backlight disappears first), the hinges holding the screen in place are weak and prone to breaking, and the lock holding the stylus in place could jam. (Easily fixed)
In addition, the casing had a thin outer layer which tended to peel, but many thought it looked better if they scraped it off, anyway.
