TI-5010 - successor of the TI-5025 - is one of the early printing desktop calculators using normal paper.
It relies on Japanese components and manufacturing capabilities. The backside of the calculator states clearly "MADE IN JAPAN" and it is easy to locate its true genes.
Dismantling the TI-5010 reveals immediately the Toshiba LC-1028PV as its sibling. Fellow collector Stefan Klaes discovered recently in a TI-5010 a printed circuit board (PCB) with a short designation "EC-3009". This magic number leads to a Radio Shack EC-3009.
some other TI calculators with their siblings manufactured by Toshiba.
The TI-5010 sports the "office grey" design of other products.
The desktop line then covered 6 different calculators:
|• TI-5008 Pocket-sized, thermal printing
• TI-5010 Small-sized, standard paper
• TI-5032 Desktop-sized, battery option
• TI-5130 10-digits, standard paper
• TI-5142-III 12-digits, standard paper
• TI-5020 Non-printing, solar powered
Five years ago with the TI-2800
Printer a new concept of small desktop calculators was introduced.
