The Magic Link was a personal communicator and PDA marketed by Sony from 1994. It was based around the MC68349  Motorola Dragon CPU, which ran at 16MHz. It had 4MB RAM and you could use additional PC cards. The Magic Link ran General Magic's Magic Cap operating system. It had a 480 x 320 pixel LCD touchscreen, operated with a stylus.

The Magic Link was powered by either 6 AAA batteries, AC power adaptor, or rechargeable battery pack (model NP-500 or NP-500H).

The "Link" part of the name refers to the device's ability to send and receive data over a modem.
