Towards Future Personalised Information Environments
In the course of the past three or four years Sony, Kyocera, Sharp, Apple and others have defined the device
we now recognise as the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). In spite of all the publicity surrounding these
devices, most offer little more than a paper-based personal organiser. Nevertheless, these are landmark
products offering considerable promise as they evolve and become ever more capable. Clearly PDAs have yet
to find their place in the world, and, when they do, I believe they will be at the centre of the next computer
revolution -- involving far more users than the personal computer revolution.
