The TI-2100 Pocket Info carries still the leading "TI-xxxx" characters. Later products got the "PS-xxxx" to indicate the "Pocket Solutions" marketing idea.
This Databank stores 55 names and numbers in a credit card sized housing.
The TI-2100 roots back to the TI-2700 Mini Data Bank introduced in the year 1987 and was followed by the PS-2100.
internal construction of the TI-2100 is very similar to the TI-2400
Texas Instruments launched in 1987 a very innovative product line with the TI-2400 Phone Bank, TI-2600 Personal Banker, TI-2700 Mini Data Bank, and TI-2800 Paperless Printer followed till 1990 with the TI-2100 Pocket Info, TI-2900 Info Bank, TI-3100 Pocket Dialer, TI-3200 Pro Dialer, and TI-3400 Europa.
If you know the history of Texas Instruments it seems to commemorate the introduction of the TI-2500 Datamath a quarter century ago.
