My First PDA – Sharp Wizard

My first PDA was an old Sharp Wizard which carried 64k of data! It was over $300 back in the day, and was considered to be a high-end model. I could add things to my calendar and keep track of what I had to do. My calendar from 1989 is still intact even! I added memos and contact lists, since there was no such thing as an iPhone. It doesn’t have a Qwerty layout, which was confusing as heck. This was literally state-of-the-art back in the late ’80s. Can you even believe that?

I relied on this a lot back in high school and even college. I used it to track assignments. Heck, I admit it… I even used the translator in Spanish class! It did have the ability to hook up to a computer using a cable and software. However, it was a pain in the butt, and not really worth doing.

So, let’s hear it. What was your first PDA? Do you even remember? Do you still have it?

If you tell me your first was something like the iPhone, I think I’m going to cry.
