The €-1796 calculator was introduced 2000 in a dark, translucent housing. Nevertheless displayed the Texas Instruments website in the 2000-2003 timeframe a white housing like the TI-1796SV.
When we asked Texas Instruments about a statement we received this early prototype. No doubt, it was a good decision to change the colour of the housing to dark blue.
In 2006 Texas Instruments surprised customers in Europe with a
complete new family of Euro Calculators labeled EC-3,
EC-5 and EC-7 Pro.
