Title: Pre-Release, Never completed Development, Betas, Prototypes
Post by: trent823 on February 18, 2016, 02:33:48 pm
There is no real list of products both software and hardware or otherwise of NeXT products that never reach mass production or release. I was wondering if anyone could help me out and try create a complete list of products that didn't make it?
I know of:
Personal Mainframe - pre cube, same everything by for the text on the back
NeXT RISC - didn't complete development because of a law suit by Apple
NeXTStep 4.2 Pre-Release 2

Can't think of much else.
Also does anyone know much about NEXTIME - I've struggled to even find its logo.

Everyone knowledge here is seriously appreciated

They made a few of an external hard drive enclosure called the RHD or Removable Hard Drive that had a tray.  I forget the details.  Someone sold one on eBay like a decade ago that was serial number 6ish.  I'll see if I can dig up photos if I saved them.

We have photos of the RHD in the file archive.
