Episode 49 – Psion and AT&T EO Personal Communicator
This is the podcast where we take an informal look at personal computing history through the lens of eBay auctions. It’s sort of like Antiques Roadshow, but all about antique personal computers. On today’s show, we continue our coverage of the first phase of handhelds. Specifically, we’ll be covering two more of the early handheld computers, the Psion and AT&T EO Personal Communicator (which is also technically a Personal Digital Assistant or PDA).
