RE: [midatlanticretro] prized possessions
- Toshiba LC-836MN.Say what...?As many of you know, I collect vintage PDAs. LOL, it's a very obscure niche, straddling the crevice between computer collecting and calculator collecting. Specifically I am interested in the 20 years of history from BEFORE that love/hate company -- Apple -- supposedly "invented" ( HA !!!! ) the PDA.It's very hard to say what was the true "first" PDA -- that depends on your definition. But I can with 99% certainty that the Toshiba LC-836MN, also known as the Memo Note 30, was the first Palm-sized digital device with a built-in memo/organizer feature. Some excellent details are posted at http://www.datamath.org/Related/Toshiba/LC-836MN.htm ... good luck finding much more than that ...I own one of these in excellent condition. Mine is in the original box, with the original manual and warranty card. I also own the OEM version, sold as the Radio Shack EC-4002, although it's in lesser condition.These and other mind-blowing vintage handhelds will be on display next weekend at the Trenton Compu... oh, sorry, that's just my usual pitch lately!- Evanso what do you all consider your most prized vintage
