This Toshiba HB-102 calculator looks much cheaper than the original 4-bangers tracing back to the LC-830

The HB-102 had compared with its sibling HB-103 sporting solar cells only a short life. After the odd key-spacing was corrected it started a second career rebadged as Texas Instruments TI-1100

HB-102_PCB.jpg (56509 Byte)The printed circuit board of the HB-102 reads "
Kentron 153-11C", probably was Kentron that time a contract manufacturer for calculators or even an OEM supplier.

Toshiba? Compare this calculator with the TI-1100.

Don't miss the odd HB-101 introduced in the same year.
