PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I've kind of painted myself in a corner with that headline, because I never anticipated I would need another preview article for this project. However, thanks to all your comments on both the site and through email, the scope of this project has grown considerably. As part of this growing scope, I'm acquiring more and more devices, and yesterday, I managed to score a phone which, while almost forgotten by most of the rest of the technology press, contained two very important firsts. Not only was this the first phone with a capacitive touch screen, it was also the first phone with an interface design from the ground-up for finger/touch input. Say hello to the LG KE850, better known as the LG Prada.

I have a Tandy PC-8 pocket computer. At one time, I had a Tandy PC-6, the gold standard of pocket computers! Of course I have a programmable HP calculator from way back.

Also I have a Pocket PC - no, a REAL Pocket PC, one of the DOS ones that runs Microsoft Works for DOS from ROM. I think it is called the Voyager. It has 2 Type I pcmcia slots on the bottom for RAM cards. It's about the size of my Libretto. Oh, yeah, the Libretto, WAY ahead of the game in the Netbook craze. I run OpenBSD on the Libretto, with an old Microsoft pcmcia wireless card. It was fun taking notes with the Libretto in class while others had their fancy laptops.

Oh, it is a dangerous game you are playing Mr. Holwerda!
