Motorola Digital Personal Communicator
In 1989, the Digital Personal Communicator, or DPC, was introduced as a lower cost alternative to the 9800X. Light or dark gray in color, the phone featured a green or orange 7-character segment LED display. It closely resembled the 9800x in terms of the keypad design and background and the main body. Early DPCs of the 9800X-era featured the elongated antenna base, round-top side grips, and white-on-gray keypad.

Later versions (most likely after 1991) lost the 9800X-specific physical features, but kept the same basic form. Bone white models were also available as special editions to cellular providers in the US. An upscale version of the DPC, known as the MicroTAC 950, or the MicroTAC Alpha in later years featured an 8-character green or orange dot-matrix LED display and the return of the alpha-numeric phonebook.

The Alpha phones were "upscale" in that they had more user-programmable options. Also, Alpha phones featured the side grip arrow keys. Soon, an "affordable" DPC 550 came to the market. Almost identical to the Digital Personal Communicator, the DPC 550 featured little with the most basic of operations.

Hi @all,

Today I got the bone white version of the DPC. I am not sure but I think this is not a regular DPC 550. The housing is indentical to the Digital Personal Communicator, except the buttons on the side. The display is identical to the DPC 550. Thx for the excellent uploads Mr. Startac!

I know that the bone white versions are special editions to cellular providers in the US. So this should be an extra listing for this phone.

Cheers
Thomas
