C HAPTER 3 AM FL Y 30 TE By the early 1980s portable video camcorders had sold over 1 million units worldwide and penetration of portable electronics to the consumer had begun in earnest. This rapid penetration was driven by the compelling application of acquiring and storing motion video images. This trend was further accelerated by the introduction of 8mm format models which were highly miniaturized. Personal organizers, such as the Sharp Wizard, were also introduced in this time frame and were most successful in Japan, where the use of personal computers was somewhat lagging that of North America.

Most importantly, these early products tended to compete with, rather than complement the desktop or notebook computer. Several manufacturers attempted to add wireless communications to their PDA products to make them more appealing. Still, the lack of integration with the 32 C HAPTER 3 desktop PC and the bandwidth limitations of the wireless telecommunications infrastructure caused these products to fail. 4 Kbs) for portable products. 2 THE ADVENT OF THE PDA PDAs burst onto the scene in 1993 and mounted a headlong assault into the commercial market-place only to be quickly repulsed.
