The Smallest Windows PC in 1995 Was Also a Phone! IBM Palm Top PC110

Wetenschap en technologie

Not only was the IBM PalmTop PC 110 the world's tiniest DOS and Windows subnotebook in 1995 but it also functioned as a telephone handset! Let's take a look at this fantastic little 33MHz 486 computer from the mid '90s, which also strove to be a personal organizer, a digital notepad, a desktop clock, a portable fax machine, and a digital camera all in one handheld device.

    What an incredible machine for its time! Props to IBM Japan and Ricoh for the design and manufacturing of such a great, little laptop. And thank you, LGR, for this extremely interesting showcase!

    So clear to see the camera ancestry. With that dock it reminds me of Sony's infamously crazy adaptors, slots, and buttons on their cameras and audio gear.

    A modern Windows 10 PC can't do everything the PC110 can out of the box. Almost everything, just not the World Clock. I believe Skype now comes with Windows 10 out of the box, so that takes care of the phone calls and you still have Windows Fax and Scan. Not sure about Wineries 8/8.1, but Windows 7 certainly couldn't do everything the PC110 can out of the box, as it doesn't come with Skype.

    15 years ahead of its time. But I kind of understand why they didn't keep developing it. Even at the price they were selling it for in 1995, I bet they weren't making much off these. That device was pushing the bleeding edge of what was possible then.

    @jbfarley Still. It's easy to be amazed by a device that could literally do the same things a modern smartphone can do (except for wireless phone calls). And it is from 1995, which is a good 13 years before the first smartphones came to the market..
