Casio - fx-702p

Description

Brand: Casio
Model: fx-702p
Type: Basic-programmable pocket computer
Batteries: CR 2032 x 2
Lifetime: Introduced: 1981
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Accompanying the calculator series started with the Casio fx-501p/502p and the Casio fx-601p/602p. I don't know if there ever was a 701p).
The 702p is a very nice calculator programmable with a horrible keyboard layout which can be programmed using a variant on the BASIC language. It can also be used for direct calculations. Functions can be selected using keys, or simply typed.

I got this calculator from a friend who is moving to a country far far away and found this calculator whilst packing. I haven't had time to play with it yet. Thanks Peter Berck!

Peripherals

There are various interfaces for this calculator (and others in this series). There are two types of cassette-interface, one which could play musical notes as well. There is also a printer, the FP-10. I own the printer FP-10 and cassette interface FA-2.
This calculator could also be extended with modules. Casio however did never sell any extension modules.
