PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Today, the technology world is gripped by what can only be described as a dirty war between iOS on one side, and Android on the other. While the parties in this war fight it out in the US court system, the web has latched onto this conflict like a starved leach to a nice juicy ankle, and this focus on just iOS and Android has had a rather unpleasant side effect. This effect was subtle at first, but now, it's everywhere. Yes, if you were to believe the web, iOS and/or Android invented everything when it comes to mobile operating systems. I will have none of that, and my PDA collection begs to differ too.

The article as is was good - it just needs to go back a little further - nice to see a Zaurus in there though - I loved my SL5500 and SL6000 (now that was a brick and a half) - anyone ever use IRK? that was mine ;)

One more for the list would be the Atari Portfolio (1989), which was an MSDOS compatible clamshell PDA form factor.
