PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "There's nothing new under the sun, some folk say, and that's certainly true of Palm's recently announced Foleo. It's the palmtop reborn in a slightly sexier, slightly larger form. Even its name is reminiscent of that bygone arena - it's rather like the Atari Portfolio, the world's first palmtop PC, released in June 1989."

...the first pocket sized computer!

On 1980, Tandy released the TRS-80 PC-1. It was a pocket-sized Computer. BASIC was built-in.

It had optional, Cassette or Printer/Cassette interfaces.
The Printer/Cassette interface was n fact a mini dot matrix printer!

Later Tandy released the PC-2 and the PC-3, the latest was smaller than the 2 previous models.

I was thinking Tandy too, but the Foleo reminds me more of the Model 100 / 200 portables.
