Notes: The Sharp PC-1350 is a pocket computer programmable in Basic. It has a standard memory size of 4 kB. It has a big 4-line display which can also be used as a graphical display of 32x150 pixels. The Basic language includes proper drawing commands like "LINE".

The design of the calculator is such that extension modules (like battery powered memory modules) and the pocket computer's batteries can be changed without the need for a screw driver. It also has a protective cap to protect the calculator when in storage.

The calculator as a serial interface and is capable of RS232 communications with the proper cable.

Machine language programming is also possible thanks to the pocket computer's PEEK, POKE and CALL commands.

Peripherals

My knowledge of this pocket computer's peripherals is limited, however I know there's a printer/cassette interface (I own one). There are also all kinds of extension (memory) modules, and an RS232 cable.
