The WorkSlate is a very unusual machine which uses a spreadsheet metaphor. It can also act as an answering machine! While it was contemporary to the TRS-80 Model 100, it was half the thickness and used NiCad batteries. A battery-powered portable hard copy plotter was optional.

If you look closely at the photo, you can see the Lotus 1-2-3 style spreadsheet interface in action.
