Texas Instruments entered already in 1991 with the PS-6200 the market of Personal Organizers.

As of March 2011 we discovered a total of 4 different designs of the PS-6200:

Name Design
Market Manufactured  Date Code
PS-6200 Organizer Blue US Taiwan I-0891
PS-6200 Organizer Red ? Taiwan I-0991
PS-6200 Organiser Blue Europe Malaysia I-0792
PS-6200 Blue US, Europe Malaysia I-0593

It is obvious that this rare PS-6200 with the red design doesn't fit into the scheme. 

Dismantling the featured PS-6200 manufactured in September 1991 by Inventec Corporation in Taiwan reveals no surprises, it is identical with the already known versions.

This PS-6200 Organizer was provided by fellow collector Michel Zwawiak. Thanks!
