Jules Allen from U.K. reports:
I had one of these awful machines and bought it at a high street electronics store (Dixons or something like that). The voice recognition was quite awful and a complete waste of time! The keyboard was indeed wireless but it did ship with a clear plastic lead that you could plug into the computer and then the PC. Presumably for computing around corners or something. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the machine was the ultra futuristic case it came in. I wish all my luggage looked like that.
Andy Sawyer write us:
At least one print advertisement for the Apricot Portable featured a numeric keypad which ran
7 8 9
4 5 6
7 8 9
Presumably a snafu by a marketing droid...
