I just got a Tandy Z-PDA, also known as Zoomer. It came out in 1993, so it was a direct competitor for our beloved Newton.
The device is based on GEOS and apparently runs DOS 3 as a substructure.
Interestingly, some software is from Pilot Computing, who later developed the Palm PDA.
The device is terribly slow and you realize what a great performance Apple already delivered with Newton OS 1.
Attached are a few pictures:
