History of the PDA

This is a great article tracing back PDA and handheld computers back to the 1970s, when the first programmable pocket calculators started appearing on the market.

I remember seeing many of these gadgets and thinking “I’ve got to have one of those!”, especially when the first Psion came out (not sure what I was going to use it for at the time), and then later when Atari released their Portfolio, and IBM XT compatible that was (almost) pocket sized. Very cool.
