I had a Psion 3 until I got a Psion 5mx in 1999. I still have it and it still works/looks new. At the time I had a new Thinkpad 700X and used the laptop as the backup to the Psion 5mx which I used as a principal computer to see if it could be done, very mobile. A dial-up modem too. The best machine around, QWERTY keyboard and came with a (still) beautiful leather wallet/case. Left it on an MTA NYC bus one night coming from California, full of credit cards and cash, all ID etc. Got it back next day from MTA dispatch, all present except for missing MTA card. Incredible design w AC cord, or (2) AA, and watch battery memory power. Built-in stylus, expansion memory card slot, modem/accessory connector.

I have one of these I picked up from Goodwill for $5. Great little addition to my growing retro collection!

For storing addresses etc off-PC I stilll use a brance of Series 3''s, one at home and one in the office where I work as a volunteer. They''re very handy.
One I used to use also when summarising the contents of old title deeds - awkward things to handle, often very large and on parchment - so a tiny computer was much better to use than even a laptop or (more recently) netbook.
It worked very well, though I missed any means of saving standard phrases which could be incorporated in my transcripts.
The automatic save to memory was a great advantage.
It''s a pity there was never a Windows version, and also that the device wasn''t developed any further. However I suppose nowadays Blackberrys and the like have taken its place - but I haven''t even got a mobile phone, let alone a smartphone!

My first husband owned one of these. It was very useful and easy to use. It even included games!
