An AgendA isn't really a later version of a Microwriter. The Microwriter
is just an input device, to be attached to any normal computer/WP. It's
about the size of a paperback book. An AgendA is a personal organiser
(akin to a Psion) which happens to have a Microwriter-style set of buttons
as well as conventional keys. Well, if you call an "A B C D ..." layout
"conventional". It's actually smaller than a Microwriter keypad, about 2/3
the size, and is landscape-layout rather than portrait.
