The CheapBoy 1999c comes as cheap junk-made version of the good old Pipboy designed by Vault-Tec. It became within the last ten years the most used personal smart hand computer in Arizona.
Original conception : Unknown, an urban legend talk about a famous post-nuke designer named "Kink[dot]com" living around Phoenix.
Production : Since the design was easily studied by reverse-engineering, most of the factions of Phoenix now produce their own versions of the Cheapboy. Needless to say, most often in poorer quality.
Operating System : CheapBoy 1.999c, license activation required for some features unidentified.
You can access your Cheapboy everywhere and anytime pushing the "P" key.
