Credit card size PDA: The XSMall from Olivetti

Anyone who thinks PDAs can't be smaller than they already are is seriously mistaken: Olivetti Lexikon Deutschland has presented a PDA the size of a credit card, called XSmall, which weighs only 45 grams. The range of functions is just as diverse as that of its larger colleagues.

The dimensions are really very compact at 90x60x7 mm. There are 768 Kbytes of memory available. With the XSmall, data is entered via a small folding keyboard, with the visual data output finally being on a monochrome LC display with a resolution of 150x100 pixels. The device is expected to change hands in March for a price of 179 DM.
