Canon Palmtronic LC-8M is one of the early calculators based on the Toshiba
T3709 calculator chip and a yellow LCD. You find a similar calculator with the
Texas Instruments TI-1750.
Canon's first LCD calculator was introduced already in 1976 with the LC-1.
The later LC-31 uses a cheap plastic housing with similar electronics, the innovative LX-40 a totally different internal construction.
Don't miss the LD-84 and LD-8M3 with the green VF-Display. The wonderful LD-8Ms used a stylish housing simlar to this LC-8M.
The LC-8M received soon a cost reduction program and was replaced with the LC-81M.
