Pocket computers links
This page contains unsorted links to pocket computers. I did not update this page when updating the site, so there may be lots of brocken links.
The Pocket Computer Museum
This is a french 8 bit pocket museum, with a large collection and detailled explanations for each machine. English version available. Check it out!
Certainly the most comprehensive Casio collection on the web, from simple 4 operation calculators to larger Basic and "pre-laptops". The collection also presents several models from other manufacturers. A must see!
Default homepage is in French, the English version is available here.
Daniel Brettnacher's site
This french site presents the collection of my friend Daniel Brettnacher. Lots of pockets; among which the very first Basic pocket computers from HP; software for your Palm, tech info...
Besides having a cool name, this site hosts one of the few collection including a Casio IF-8000. Most of the collection is unfortunately not on line as i write this. Keep up the good work!!
Don't mistake this site for any other "vintage(-)computer(s)" site out there. This one displays an interesting collection, which includes few pocket devices but which has it's share of rare bits. On the site, you'll also find a discussion board about vintage computers and collecting (just as expected! :) )
This site is in spanish, but it's a valuable place to get started in discovering some of the best and most surprising databank watches ever!
La maison des calculatrices classiques
Another great french site, dedicated to scientific programmable calculators. I like the very complete and accurate historical part in particular... A reference site for french-speakers! :)
Excellent site dedicated to modern pocket machines and PDAs. Even older ones are referenced here. This site is also pretty complete as for up-to-date news, manufacturers projects and latest releases...
Also on the menu : software reviews for almost all platforms, and reviews of various other non-computer pocket devices.
X-Number World is dedicated to calculators, from vintage calculators to modern calculators. Reviews, distributors, various links...
It also has a whole part dedicated to online calculators that you can actually use into your browser. Cool!
Pygmy's Zaurus Directory
Pygmy is a pocket computers distributors. This links to their Sharp Zaurus products directory. You know what? I like Zaurus! So here's the page! If you're interested in what ELSE pygmy offers, below is link to their homepage.

Just like i've told above, here's a direct link to the company.
Interesting site to keep ones PDAs knowledge up-to-date.
Mobilis is an online magazine. It features lots of interesting stuff that i advice you to discover by yourself. It is planned to have an online museum. The museum shall open on february 16th. Just check, maybe it's open now, and tell me what you think about it!
The Zoomer Pages
This site is dedicated to to the Zoomer PDAs, that is a range of PDAs from various manufacturers running GEOS. It includes various interesting parts, such as software lists, mailing lists...
PDAntic is a resource site for PDAs. It covers mostly recent and popular machines, but it has interesting stuff for these machines.
GEOS User Club
Here is a german site that seems quite complete, although i've not subscribed yet and most of the features need a login to enter. Anyway, it seems to be a cool place for all GEOS users. More infos when i'm a member!
The Small Computer Club links
This is page full of links to plenty of pocket computers ressources. Although it's all in japanese text code format, most of the links are in english and one can still read the URLs to guess what the link is about. Check this page, you may find usefull things!
Hewlett Packard HP 48 site
Well, this URLs links to a random page, somewhere within a HP48 website. When i bookmarked this page, i was dedicated to helping HP pocket computers users. It is now a different page, but it still has to do with pocket computing!
Sharp Zaurus Pages
These are the official Sharp-USA pages about the Zaurus products. Very cool products, rather complete pages, check it out!

This is an amazing collection of pocket machines! Lots of machines, lots of pictures, GO AND SEE IT! Eiji Kako semms to also have a "real life" museum which can be visited. The adress is on his site.
