Tandy Portable Wordprocessor WP-2
Extract from Tandy catalog:
"These are battery operated, weight only 3.1 pounds and are 1" thin. The full size keyboard lets you cut, paste, search, replace, center and justify your text with just a few keystrokes. And there's no need to lug around a heavy dictionnary. The jet black case houses a 100,000-word spelling checker and a 200,000-word thesaurus. For hard copies of your work, the WP-2 easily connectes to Tandy or IBM-compatible printers. You even add an optional modem to transfer files to your personal computer by phone."
The following applications are built-in ROM and available in standard: TEXT, TELCOM, PHONE (address), CALENDAR (schedule), SPELLCHECK and FILES.
The WP-2/3 while being dedicated word processors also have a terminal mode and x-modem file transfer capabilities. You can write programs on another computer, assemble them and xfer them to the WP-2/3 with x-modem and they can then be run.
