The TI-1606 could be called one of the smallest, thinnest and lightest "landscape-style" solar powered calculator manufactured by Texas Instruments. Compare it with the TI-1626 introduced in the same year and the later TI CARD calculator TI-1786.
the TI-1606 - a non-reversable process - reveals a simple construction known
from other calculators of the mid-80's.
With the TI-1505 a sibbling powered with a thin coin shaped battery was introduced in the same time frame.
