The "Miniterm" portable computer terminal was the Computer Devices Incorporated's primary product.
This "hand-carried" computer was preprogrammed to lead sales, manufacturing, and other untrained in computer operation through data processing tasks. Stored on a minicassette, the program was called up automatically when the computer is switched on.
Model 1206/PAT had a 64k processor with 32k RAM and included a modem acoustic coupler, and an 80-column thermal printer that could produce 50 characters per second. Programs were developped in Basic or in Motorola 6800 assembly language on a companion unit.
Options included a 132-column printer, alphanumeric bar-code reader, and a 1.44 MB disk drive.
More information from Ken Steiner:
I was the software guy for this product. It had no display, 80 or 132 column printing, it could print raster graphics using Digital Equipment format. I forget the name of the OS, but it was unusual, even for 6800 standards. It had two different versions of basic - one in ROM that was similar (not as powerful) as in the Apple2, and one called STRUBAL - structured Basic Language. The disk drive was optional. I don't know if any were sold with disk drive, and a few were sold without disk drive.
