Abstract

In addition to a iadio receiver, a pager contains a general purpose microprocessor, memory, display and keyboard. This combination of circuitry is capable of doing many general purpose functions in addition to receiving pages. Also, many paging related features (such as escalerts, auto on/off, alarms) are being left out of some models due to limited memory size or cost con- straints. Since there are many specialty options that could be put into a pager that are not of general interest to all people, I propose adding a plug in expansion slot to a pager that would allow the user to purchase and install additional options that suit his personal needs.
