Sharp IQ-9000 Electronic Organiser
The IQ-9000 is an electronic personal organiser with a touchscreen interface. The device comes with a variety of utilities such as a calculator, clock, notebook, calendar and a contacts list.
The PDA could also take cards, that had more sophisticated programs on them, and others that give more memory and even ones that allowed the connection to a PC to back up files.
One of the organiser's best features is the ability to write on the screen with the included plastic pen, a very early device to do so.
Devices such as the IQ-9000 would soon find themselves rendered obsolete by ever more sophisticated mobile phones.
