* ''VisualNovel/{{Ace Attorney Investigations|MilesEdgeworth}}'' features an aversion with a ''cell phone''. The cell phone in question had a cracked LCD display, but otherwise functioned well enough to ring when called. [[spoiler:It also featured a camera, and the phone's memory contained a photograph which proved critical to the case. Franziska accessed the photograph by synchronizing the phone with her own cell phone, which was a similar model.]]

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent: During an [[http://sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=593 information raid]] on a AbandonedHospital, Sigrun suggests taking a computer in case someone back home knows how to make it work and grabs a monitor (which promptly disintegrates). A justified use of the trope since she lives in a society with only memories of computers and has no way of knowing which part is the computer and which is the monitor.

Of course we are also there already in some ways - a smartphone or tablet is essentially a monitor with the computer built in. Just not in many examples from pre-2005.
