It wasn’t the most popular device but the Psion IKON was a fondly liked device here by software guys especially.  The Psion IKON announced its end today though with product ceasing on 30th June 2013

The last order date to order any more of the rugged handheld PDA’s will be 31st May and some accessories will be going too including docking cradles and any vehicle kit, so anyone with Psion IKON’s, you need to get your final accessory purchases in for 30th June.  We know that batteries, hand straps and cables etc will continue to be available until further notice.

So what do you buy instead?  Well Psion don’t really have a like for like replacement for the IKON and due to the take over by Motorola, we’re still wondering where the Psion range will go right now.  The Psion EP10 is a smaller, lighter option but those wanting a big battery and bigger, tougher device have a few options.  I’ve got a link here with some Psion IKON alternative devices for you.

Have a great bank holiday weekend (if you’re in the UK)!
