Actually, the Kyocera QCP6035 was released in 2000, the first 'smartphone' but you could easily argue that some devices like the old 1998 Nokias were also technically computers. The Handspring Treo PDA joined us in 2001... ya tool!

Before I saw the comment from guest55 I was going to post the comment 'That is incredible' It is amazing how some enlightened people can almost see into the future..My only comment now is to say that when I left the USA in 1972 I wished I had that knowledge..I would not now be living on a UK goverment pension. Hindsight really is a wonderfull thing..not.
