Samsung sold laptop computers with plasma displays in the eighties, I think Toshiba did too. But they were high-resolution monochrome (amber on black, or vice vera), not colour, and used so much power they could only be used plugged in. I've never seen a small colour plasma display. Maybe they would have been developed if LCD hadn't been lighter and more suitable for laptops, and thus attracted serious development money.

later - done a little checking - Compaq and Toshiba seem to have been the main companies that tried plasma display laptops / portable PCs, and resolution was poorer than I thought I remembered, looks like basic CGA or EGA equivalent with four "grey" scales.
