Apple Newton MessagePad (1993) -- John Sculley, the CEO of Apple in the early '90s, coined the phrase Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) to describe the Newton MessagePad. The handheld device featured an ARM 610 processor ambling along at 20MHz, 640K of RAM and a 336 x 240 display. Despite proving to be a financial flop before being discontinued in February 1998, the device helped mark the beginning of the PDA era and paved the way for the iPhone and the iPad.
