Cracking Open 3com's Original Palm Pilot

Cracking Open the 3Com's Original Palm Pilot

Before the iPhone and before BlackBerry, there was the Palm Pilot. Known as the Atari 2600 of PDAs, the Palm Pilot was considered revolutionary in its heyday, as business execs trashed their Franklin-Covey day planners and replaced them with this new status symbol of the dot-com boom of the late 90s.

Alas, technology moves quickly and the Palm Pilot was left in the dust after a handful of years in the spotlight. We've rescued this model just so we can crack him open and see what this time capsule of circuitry looks like on the inside.
