We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Oregon Scientific PD293 Organiser

One of the smallest PDAs in the market, the Oregon Scientific PD293-512 offers no-frills convenience.

Digital organisers probably don't come any smaller than the Oregon Scientific PD293-512. The product is about the size of an identity card. Yet, it comes with many of the vital functions that a conventional personal digital assistant (PDA) has. These include standard functions like a phone book, note pad and calendar, among others. Although these functions may not be as extensive as in a full-featured PDA, they should be sufficient for users who require a no-frills way of organising their lives.The Oregon Scientific PD293-512 can be synchronised with a PC to transfer data between the devices.
