Sorry for an offtopic, but this question is bothering me for many years and I don't know where else to ask.

Back in a 90s, I think it was 1995 my mother received a personal computer from Germany. It was amazing piece of equipment, with built in floppy drive in to keyboard and a system block, with built in Monochrome 14" touchscreen display on a right side of the screen there was a phone handset and on a top of it, there was a fax / printer.

Did any one seen or remember something like this?

Not necessarily off-topic. Unfortunately, I don't know what kind of computer it is. Do you have anything more? Processor/storage/interface specs? What operating system it ran? Even what the keyboard layout looked like? –  Ben Richards Mar 16 '12 at 17:50
I believe it was a Canon device, not sure which OS they where using at this time, as I was a kid, I remember that interface was divided in blocks about 5x5 where every block was application shortcut, there was a cool Chase game. –  Nazariy Mar 16 '12 at 18:04
that could have been a launcher program. MS-DOS had many launcher programs, some of which looked like that. Did it use a mouse at all? Was there a mouse cursor, if so? Was it an arrow or a block? –  Ben Richards Mar 16 '12 at 18:06
I guess there was a mouse but cannot say much about a cursor as I was fascinated with touchscreen. –  Nazariy Mar 16 '12 at 18:54
I missed the touchscreen part. Was it a CRT or LCD display? I'm trying to fish for more details that may make research easier for us. –  Ben Richards Mar 16 '12 at 19:00
