The US and UK partnership between Honeywell Bull and Pick-popper Ultimate Corp has quietly introduced a 68020-based derivative of the Honeywell Italia XPS 100 to run the Pick operating system from Ultimate and complement the DPS 6 mini-based Pick systems. The 1400 began shipping in the US at the end of July and the partnership claims around 300 unit sales of the machine to date and 25 in the UK in one month of shipments. The first public showing of the machine in the UK is at this week’s Spectrum ’87 show. Ultimate also says that it is working on a project with Honeywell Bull in the US to produce a Pick-based machine that will be built around multiple 680X0 processors.
