The PS-6600 Organiser continued the approach started with the PS-6200 Organizer and leading to products like the PS-6700 before ending with the PocketMate 300 in the year 1999. In the United States an almost identical product was sold as Organizer.

The PS-6600 Organiser keeps three main types of information:  

Reminders with unlimited alarms
Addresses with a capacity of roughly 3000 entries
Notes sharing the same 64k 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 calendar from January 1901 to December 2099.
A calculator with 10-digits display capacity and 
    52 different currency and metric conversions
World time of 23 cities in all 24 time zones 
A backup battery
A transfer cable to connect two Organizers
An optional connection between the Organizer an a IBM-compatible PC

The direct successor of the PS-6600 could be found with the PS-6700 and the enhanced sibbling PS-6800. In 1994 the design of the PS-6600 was slightly changed. 

Don't miss the TI-81 graphing calculator using almost identical hardware!
