The PS-6200 started already in 1991 a series of Organizers leading to products like the PS-6700 and terminated with the PocketMate 300 only 9 years later.

The PS-6200 organizer keeps three main types of information:

Reminders with unlimited alarms
Addresses with a capacity of roughly 1500 entries
Notes sharing the same 32k Byte memory like the addresses

In addition to the basic Organizer function you'll discover:

A flexible clock with 12-hour AM/PM or 24-hour time
A calculator with 10-digits display capacity
World time of 23 cities in all 24 time zones 
A backup battery
A transfer cable to connect two PS-6200 Organizers

The design of the PS-6200 Organizer was changed in 1992, don't miss the revised PS-6200. Texas Instruments had to change the product name slightly for the European market, don't miss the PS-6200 Organiser. Fellow collector Michel Zwawiak provided us in March 2011 a PS-6200 Organizer in a completely different design. Thanks!
