Qualcomm PDQ 800

<< >>
Description (Brief)
In 1998 Qualcomm introduced their model PDQ-800 cellular phone. An early so-called “smart phone,” the PDQ-800 combined a cell phone with a personal digital assistant (or PDA) based on the interface used by Palm Pilots. The user simply flipped down the number pad and wrote Palm “Graffiti” characters with a stylus to interface with the unit.
