1983.

Many people probaly belive that Tandy Radio Shack is an all American computer. That is not the case. The Japanese company Kyocera did this computer for no less than three (3) companies. In addition to Tandy, also for NEC (PC 8201) and Olivetti (Olivetti M10).

TRS-80 Model 100 is almost like a small laptop. Small and neat and with a built-in screen, and it was even possible to operate by 4 AA batteries. RAM was not too much at the beginning, but along with the built-in modem, the mobility, it made it possible for reporters to write out in the field and then send in their reportage.

In Sweden, this machine was not too big. Just this specimen has been used by the former telecom company "Televerket" in any context. Thats why the Televerket mark is on the top.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
