TI-1706 III got a rounder shape and different keys compared to the earlier TI-1706-II introduced
two years earlier. The design was continued with the TI-106.
The inside technology of the TI-1706 III is not very exciting and relies on a Sharp LI3135MS single-chip calculator circuit.
A similar calculator housing was used with the related TI-1766 III.
The next step in the evolution could be found in the TI-1706+ featuring a slightly changed housing. Don't miss the final TI-1706SV introduced in 1998.
Don't miss the special edition of the TI-1706 III with the UNOCAL logo printed on the sliding cover.
