3.5" Floppy Disk Calculator

Description

Brand: Unknown
Model: 3.5" Floppy Disk Calculator
Type: Design calculator
Batteries: Solar
Lifetime: Introduced: unknown
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Although floppy drives are rarer nowadays (especially in the Apple Macintosh environment), this is quite a nice calculator. The metal slider hides the LCD and solar cell from view when closed. When opened, the calculator immediately switches on and is ready for use.

Because this is a promotional calculator, one can find it with all kinds of imprints. The ones I've found so far are shown on this page.

For a very long time these promotional calculators were for sale at http://www.specprom.com/category/promotional-Calculators_p1.htm (Link valid 2006-10-29). Not anymore however but many other promotional calculators can still be found there.
