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).

    Dear team,

    I enjoyed this episode very much. Actually, I won the auction on the AT&T EO Communicator (Jeffs Auction).

    I now have the problem of powering the thing. Does someone have a spare power supply for that by any chance?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jeff and David,

    I had listened to this episode several months ago and tried to send you an audio comment regarding my daily use of a Psion 5. But after several attempts, it seems that none of my e-mails with the audio attachment are making it to you, even if it only has a link to Google Drive. Anyhow, here is the link, below, to my small audio comment regarding that episode. It was recorded in October 2016.

    Wishing success to David’s new ventures (school and new job) and can’t wait for the new episodes with Jeff and Todd using the classic form which I always loved.
