HP Gadget... - Giancarlo (Italy) - 06-11-2008

Hi Forum.

I stumbled upon this:

and thought I'd share....

Best regards.

I have got to buy one of these!

Hmm... I think my iPhone already does that. Looks pretty cool though. Does everything my Datamath 2500 did -- and is less cumbersome on the keyring.

Clicking on the image leads to four other calcs I didn't know existed. I guess I've been in a cave.

The other three (OfficeCalc 100/200 and Quick Calc) are just
relabelled $5 calcs from an oem supplier,

and the so-called PrintCal is a maybe $10 relabelled calc from the same oem supplier.
Similar to the 6s/Solar , 8s, 9s, 9g, 10s, 30s (?) and maybe some more.

Also note the inconsistent naming schema: OfficeCalc, PrintCal (missing final c), Quick Calc (the latter with two words)...

I wouldn't waste any more thoughts about them.
