To help in locating an MP120 with NOS 1.3, there’s actually a trick using the device’s serial number.
A MessagePad 120 that shipped with NOS 1.3 has a serial number that ends in “1GQ” ... whereas a MessagePad 120 that can be upgraded (or has been upgraded) to NOS 2.0 has a serial number that ends in “6B5”.
This can be verified by looking at the serial numbers of MP110 and MP130 devices. An MP110 can only run NOS 1.3, so its serial number will end in “1GQ”.
Likewise, an MP130 can only run NOS 2.0, so its serial number will end in “6B5”.
The more you know.
