I was chatting with Zetr0 about this the other day and said I would post some piccys.

It is a WebWedge, origionally running W2K untill HDU failed, so I was thinking about using it for a hack - possibly with an A600.

12" Touch Screen, Microphone at bottom, Card Swipe above...

Handset has Microphone and speaker, also Barcode Reader?..

Its footprint is 285mm x by 285mm


Any comments etc appreciated, or what would you do with it.

Hmmm... I take it this is a POS (Point of Sale, not the other meaning :lol: ) device. The only thing I can find on it is a reference to it on this site http://www.cinteractive.co.uk/.

Are the sockets on the back RJ11 or RJ45? I presume getting drivers for it could be an issue, unless you are replacing the main board.

How about the Ultimate MSN and Skype phone?

Yep Merlin it is an EPOS unit.

Drivers shouldn't really be a big issue for it as the Mobo probably carries a stock chipset.

So what i would do is.....

1) install a new HDU (obviously)
2) Re-install W2K or XP Tablet edition if the Hardware can take it.
3) USB Wireless Dongle
4) MSN & Skype as Merlin sugested
5) WinUAE & KG's WHDLoad Packs.
6) Any other Emulator that takes your fancy ... BBC, Acorn etc

7) Enjoy.

I think trying to retrofit an A600 maybe a bit of a nightmare esp if the display is being driven directly by onboard connector. Even if not scandoubling etc.. to much of a headache.
