Question

Can and MC90xx with .NET Operating System Be Upgraded to WM2003?

Facts

MC9050, MC9010, MC9060

Answer

If the original operating system of an MC90xx terminal is .NET, (also known as Embedded OS), it cannot be upgraded to WM/PPC2003.  There are circuitry differences between the two hardware portions and also licensing issues.

The WM/PPC2003 terminals require a CODEC (to make music and such).  .NET units only have a beeper.
Some .NET units have a 32MB/32MB memory configuration and WM/PPC2003 requires at least 64MB/64MB.
