The GRiDPad 1910 is the computer most commonly associated with the words "grid pad", AKA the brand name "GRiDPad", owned by GRiD. The first GRiDPad was introduced in 1989.
The GRiDPad 1910 is basically an extremely portable PC-XT. It had a 640x400 backlit Monochrome touchscreen CGA display. It had 2MB of system memory, and often came equipped with a 20 MB 2.5" IDE disk. The pen system was capacitance-based, with a wired stylus. There was a 6-pin micro-DIN XT keyboard interface. Audio was limited to the usual PC Speaker support. There was one serial port expressed on the unit, and expansion for a modem.
This unit was used primarily for inventory purposes. It was apparently used within Chrysler for that inventory purposes, and also by the United States Army. The military specified more rigidity and durability from the case than the civilian version provided, and so GRiD made the case out of magnesium.
