The PS-6100 Organizer is similar to the PS-3600+ Databank but added both memory and functionality.

The PS-6100 organizer keeps three main types of information: Reminders, Addresses and Notes. Within these three areas, there are many different ways to store and recall information. The huge memory of the PS-6100 with 32k Bytes size is flexible and could be divided without any limitations among the three files. In addition to the basic Organizer function you'll discover:

A flexible clock with 12-hour AM/PM or 24-hour time
A calendar from January, 1960 to December, 2059.
A calculator with 10-digits display capacity 
World time of 30 cities in all 24 time zones 
A backup battery

Unfortunately the display size is limited to one line for alphanumeric characters and two lines supporting only numbers. The display itself is limited to 12 digits per line but the arrow keys allow a maximum of 36 characters. The manual of the PS-6100 pictures the INDIGLO backlight and the hardware of the PS-6100 is prepared for it. But on this particular model manufactured end of the year 1996 doesn't got the green key to activate it ! 

In addition this Organizer won't fit with the PS-6155 Dock-station cradle. Later products like PS-6560i combined a small display with the PC connectivity.

The design of the PS-6100 fits neatly with the PS-2000 and PS-2400+.
