Telectronics "Black Book" Microcomp is designed as a compact computers system for urban patrol officers, the Black Book is the size and shape of a common pocket computer, and can be found on the hip of almost every 2020 cop (sometimes it is built into the dash of a patrol car). The Black Book has all the capabilities of a standard microcomp of Zetatech's E-book, and is packed with police modifications.

It has a cellular communications link For immediate access to police Net-based databases. Its left side has a slot for reading the magnetic strips of driver and weapon licenses, and the front end has a heat-sensitive optical scanner for fingerprint identification. The small videoscreen can be used to call criminal records, and a tiny laser-printer can be used to run off a ticket or summons in seconds. Although the Black Book comes chipped for interface, it has a small keypad as backup. Housed in a nearly-indestructible Kevlar frame, the Black Book can withstand a hit from a .357 Magnum (SP15) and is also shielded against microwaves and EMP.[1]
