You are familiar with this Conic EL-601 calculator? You are right, this calculator - and its siblings Audio Sonic U 100, Hercules TR-30, Junior EL-601, Nikjan EL-601, and Wintron 3000 - are a nearly perfect copy of the TI-1250.

Within the Datamath Calculator Museum we refer this calculator as Far East Generic Design III, it was probably introduced in 1978 after the famous Design I and Design II.
