Mobile computing in the early 90s

by Volker Weber


When 2 MB were a substantial mass storage upgrade.



Yes, deep down in the basement I still have a 2000 and a Keyboard and at the office I have a 130 And once in a while when I'm really really sentimental I put some AA batteries in it and start it up...and enjoy what we already had 25 years ago.

Finally Apple lost me when they stopped producing this machine...I never got over it...

Ah, Klasse! Danke für die Bilder. Ich erinnere mich gerade daran, mal per IrDA mit einem Nokia Mobiltelefon ;-) einen Philips Nino unterwegs 'online' gebracht zu haben - war nur ein 'mal sehen, ob das klappt'.
Das war aber in den späten 90ern, also nochmal 6-7 Jahre später als die MessagePads. Krasse Zeiten :-D

OT: Ganz schöne Weihnachten an alle und beste Wünsche.

I was just thinking about this the other day, I always wanted one. My weapon of choice was the Palm Pilot. Similar to Sven every now and again I charge it up and play around with it. Such a shame they lost their way.
