famous TI-2500 Datamath calculator was first announced in
April 1972 together with the Deskmath LP3500 desktop model.
Find a reprint of the Press Release about the introduction here.
Beginning June 1972
first customers got in the Neiman-Marcus and Sanger-Harris department stores in
Dallas, TX both the TI-2500 and the rare Deskmath LP3000 before the formally
introduction on September 21, 1972.
In September 1972 the nameplates of the desktop models changed to the more common TI-3000 and TI-3500 designations. Unfortunately the "Deskmath" nickname disappeared.
We recently acquired this transitional TI-3000 Deskmath sporting already the new color scheme and lettering of the TI-3000 but still using the old housing with the LP3000 Deskmath label.
To our current knowledge only few (about
calculators were produced between May 1972 and August 1972 in a beige housing. For the later
a slightly darker color was chosen.
