The TI-502 was one of the very cheap calculators sold by Texas Instruments. A small, slanted housing, rubber keys and a battery enhanced by a colorful type designation. That's it!
Between 1986 and 1987 four different colorings appeared:
• TI-502 blue
• TI-502 yellow
• TI-502 black
Production of the TI-502 was shifted 1992 to Thailand.
Texas Instruments continued the TI-500 line, view the TI-506 adding solar cells and the later TI-507 or the TI-503SV.
The TI-508 with a similar design could be called a small desktop calculator.
