Yeah, I missed his classifying the handhelds under "calculators" 
(he's got a great collection of calculators also).  The wallet-sized 
MK-87 uses the same PDP-11 clone chip.

BTW, the owner of the site has a great little project he worked out--
a terminal consisting of nothing more than an ATMega16 uC and RS232 
level translators to produce a composite video signal (PAL) driving a 
32x29 character display.  Very clever:

Includes source code and schematic.

Text is in Russian, but is quite readable translated by Google 
language tools.
