What is the Organiser II?

The grandfather of all handhelds is a small pocket computer, built into a rough trade case small enough to fit into a suit pocket. It is based on the HD6303X microprocessor and runs on a standard square 9V battery for months.
 
It has many built-in functions like save/retrieve data, a calculator, a diary, timekeeping, alarms, etc. Unlike nowadays hendhelds, even programming is easy with OPL, a language quite similar to BASIC.  
 
The Psion Organiser II (two) was made from the mid eighties to early nineties, and reputedly over a million were produced. You'd be surprised how many of them still are doing their duty.  
 
There are 3 base models (CM XP and LZ) and some point of sale (POS) variants. Details...
 


A comprehensive overview of the history of Psion itself, and of all models is at Steve Litchfield's 3lib site.
