the OG100 holds some questionable records.
It has the display with lowest possible contrast,
the smallest display compared to the other LX based machines,
and the shortest possible battery life.
Actually you can virtually watch the battery go flat.
Of course the OG 100 was the first LX based device
*without* an AC adapter option...
The GEOS and the switchable display are the most interesting
things on the OG,
other than that the OmniGo was designed to avoid success;-)
The OG 120 has some *minor* improvements over the OG 100,
such as a better battery life, and a so-called 'holographic' display.
Actually the display is much better readable than on the OG 100,
but still way substandard, even at the time of introduction.
I paid more than 500 DM for my first OG 100 when it was new,
and regretted it shortly after...
