Back in 2001 Sharp introduced the Sharp Zaurus (SL-5500) that was a Linux PDA. the Zaurus also had the ability for expansion cards -- such as a camera, wireless card, and hard wired network card. The camera is kinda cool as it rotates -- so you can have it either front or backward facing.

Looking for investors for my Fantastic Idea: "A Retro Computer Coffee Shop" called "FrostByte". The concept is that vintage computers and software will be displayed like it's 1984. And when people order stuff (not the coffee) it will always be "out of stock" and "placed on order". Don't miss out on this revolutionary business opportunity.
A friend actually emailed me and said this might fly in Silicon Valley.
EndNote v5 for Mac, VirtualPC for Mac (runs Windows 98), Netware (I wonder who remembers this), HP 28S scientific calculator, Flight Simulator II for Apple II, Windows 95 (lots of them), Apple Macintosh SE/30, Apple Scanner, Apple Keyboards (2), Wireless Palm Pilot keyboard (ironically, I don't have a Palm Pilot), RIM PlayBook with 2 software cases, HP HIL Keyboards (2).
Needed to open up the Unix PC and see what was the cause of the failing hard drive (hoping it may have been a loose connection). It is amazing how difficult it was to open the case -- a note are the little plastic clips (you fear breaking them as you are removing the plastic). Also, notice the massive "wood" screws.
