Does anybody know wether OZ-707 card would work in a Sharp IQ-8900?

This nice site Sharp IQ Serie deals with those organizers and their cards. Although its in German, I guess anybody can derive the most important information from there.

I don't have the IQ-8900 but the layout on my IQ-9000 looks pretty similar, and the IQ-707 card works flawlessly. But the area used on the display is rather tiny. So you are better off with an organizer up to IQ-8500.

Thanks Gunter, it helped my memory tremendously!

The IQ-8900/8920 is equivalent to US model OZ-9500/9520, so yes it will definitely work on these models, though as noted here, the 707 card was designed for the original, smaller LCD so it's output is limited to the original sized LCD area (you can only use a portion of the LCD for Program output).

Also, as Gunter notes, the IQ-8B03 was designed for the original 8000 series and has 40 chars wide output (vs. 16 in 707), but this too uses only a portion of the LCD on the 8900 as it is much "taller" than the original 8000 series.

The link Gunter provided has all the machine specs to make the above comments easier to understand.

Have fun!
