Meaning of the serial numbers

You can find the serial number engraved into the bottom of the Palmtop. There are rare cases where there is no serial number, or where the serial number is printed on a paper label which is attached to the bottom.

 

100LX, 200LX, 1000CX, OG700LX

Pattern:
XXYWWNNNNN

XX = country of manufacturing (SG = Singapore ...)
Y = year of manufacturing, last digit (6 = 1996)
WW = week of the year of manufacturing
NNNNN = Number of manufactured units before yours during the specified week

Example:
The serial number SG40201880 means:

  • SG: Made in Singapore
  • 4: Manufactured in 1994
  • 02: Manufactured in the 2nd calendar week of 1994
  • 01880: 1881st unit made in that week.

AA = Year-60 (32 = 1992)
WW = Week number
C = Country of manufacturing (S = Singapore, A = USA)
NNNNN = Number of manufactured units before yours during the specified week

Dear fellow Palmtopper!

If I can help you with the contents of this website, please consider making a donation.

 

Your donation, even if it's just a single USD, will help me to:

  • finance the server that hosts the site
  • justify time I spend with maintaining the site and do not spend with earning money otherwise (wife is watching! ;D)
  • just continue to be motivated :)

Since my company "hermocom" does not exist for many years anymore, I am now spending my spare time and private money for all of this. Thank you very much! 🙂
