Comments from visitors
 

Software I have for this machine

Built in BASIC and several PDA like apps -- address book, text editor, telecom, and calendar

 

From left to right:RS-232C, Printer, Phone, and Cassette

This is the right side -- power switch and power plug

I think this is some sort of serial port (there was a bar code reader, was this the port it used?)

Notice in the upper left the battery compartment. It uses four AA batteries! Very efficient with power! The other open area looks like some sort of ROM slot.

This is the top hinged open.

This is a close up of the broken keyboard. Notice that board's dent? That is below the Y key and makes several keys non functional.

 

Close up of the screen. (The shadow is me taking the picture.)
