    Lightbulb Informer 207/102-v22 smart terminal with VT52 & VT-102 epoms

    Hi all,

    Well late 2016 this very cute portable smart terminal / workstation as Informer called it, came up for sale in Perth, Australia.

    I was lucky enough to purchase it. Seeing it has a CRT rather than LCD screen, I was really worried that it would not survive the journey across Australia to Melbourne. Thankfully it did. It was super well triple packed. Came it its own original carry bag with user manuals.

    So here are some pics

    Perhaps you could add to the Informer 207 page at the Teminals wiki: http://terminals-wiki.org/wiki/index.php/Informer_207

    Hi Torfinn,
    i missed you post here. Yes, that's a good idea and I will do that.

    Also what I need to do is grab a copy of the roms and post them on bitsavers.

    its possible when other foke that see the non VT102 version of this terminal come up for sale, that they could get it cheap and blow new roms to make it VT102.

    Also looking back at my pics I noticed the unit has a button battery, so I need to get unit open and change battery.
