eBay item, boxed with a Psion version sticker.

Postby Chr$ » Wed Jul 22, 2020 1:08 pm

This QL on UK eBay has a red sticker on its box that reads: 'Contains New Revised Versions of Psion Application Software'.

I'd not seen that before.

I suppose that probably indicates that it included the much improved Psion software v2.00, that came out in around Feb/Mar 1985.


Collector of original and some newer QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't understand how any of them work.
Original BBQL's: 3x German, 1x UK model (plus quite a bit of other old stuff)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
PC with QXLII card installed
Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

I remember my QL box had the same sticker. It was a D15 and the Psion software was at v2.00.
I bought it in August 1985, just before the price drop :x
Interestingly, some QLs sold later were earlier versions with JM ROMs and Issue 5 boards. They just needed to get rid of them ;)
