The Displayphone was interesting attempt to combine voice and data functionality in one unit. Although we take voice and data integration for granted today, back in 1982 this was a unique, and futuristic concept. The Displayphone combines a telephone with a small computer terminal and a 300 baud modem. The terminal also features a few basic personal productivity applications.
Although it never enjoyed much success in the telephone market, it did prove to be a hit with movie goers. The high-tech look of this early 80's technology proved to be too much to resist of the producers of sci-fi flicks of the period. The Displayphone appeared in a number of movies where it was protrayed as a furturistic video phone - a novel concept for the time, but certainly a function never actually performed by the real thing!
