That is absolutely amazing. We were still using DOS & Windows 3.1 or WFWG in this time period on our desktops (If you could afford one). That tablet looks very similar to today's technology. I never had a PC until 1998. I had a Commodore in the late '80s. I had a heavy company laptop in 1991 that was a Toshiba with yellow text only - no graphics. It had a dial-up modem. It was used to fill out forms and time tickets for employees. I never saw anything color on a portable device.

Pretty forward-thinking, isn't it? Other than the use of a stylus, which some tablets actually have (though I think most people prefer their fingers).

It's weird for me to tell younger people that I remember when the Internet used to screech at you, and when you had to open a different application to check your e-mail Smile
