Early handheld computing – unboxing a brand new Sony Clie PDA from 2001

Palm helped popularize the PDA with its Palm OS-based devices, but Sony took the form factor and added new features that made their devices easier and more fun to use. I owned a Clie PEG-S320 back in 2001, and while I no longer have that unit, I decided to buy another one brand new in the box and see if I could get it working again. Spoiler alert: any time you’re dealing with “new old stock” that’s been sitting on the shelf for 16+ years, there are going to be problems to overcome! But in the end, it’s a success.
