Description

Computer

The Sony HB-101P is the adaptation for the European market of the HB-101 - see HB-101 series for the technical details

Firmware

The firmware is launched automatically when you boot the machine. It's an English version of the original Japanese software.

It has 6 options: Address, Schedule, Memo, Transfer (replaced by Copy when a HBI-55 cartridge is present), BASIC + DATA CARTRIGE (only if HBI-55 present), BASIC.

The BASIC + DATA CARTRIGE option allows to save little BASIC programs on the data cartridge and to load / run them from this cartridge, with the commands SAVE"CAT:" and LOAD"CAT:".

By comparison with the HB-55P and HB-75P machines, the firmware has been improved to support the addition of a disk drive. Besides, from MSX-BASIC, you can go back to the Personal Databank with CALL HITBIT or _HITBIT.
