This is a Psion 3a Handheld PDA (Personal Assistant) from 1993.  This is the model with 256K RAM, a 16-bit Multi-tasking CPU and Digital Audio.

Powered by 2 AA batteries (supplied), this is fully tested and working model - it includes

  • Database program
  • Word processor
  • Diary
  • Spreadsheet Program
  • World Map and Time Zones
  • Voice Recorder and Play back
  • Calculator
  • OPL Programming Language

ALso included is the Spreadsheet User Guide and the (albeit later) series 3c User Guide, original leatherette case (with room to hold the Psion 3a and 3 data paks), plus a non-working Psion 3a 1MB RAM for spares / parts

The Psion 3a (1MB version) has two problems - the small metal tab which sits between the two AA batteries to link them together is missing, and only the top half of the screen works.  You should be able to take the LCD screen and the metal tab from the 256K version, to fix the 1MB RAM version.
