                The Atari Calculator Range

The Atari Consumer Products Division based in Scottsdale, Arizona, launched a range of calculators for sale worldwide in 1987.  According to ACP President David Harris, "we have been able to reach a run rate of 1 million (units) per year".  The range was licensed to Hartech for manufacturing (Taiwan) and distribution (worldwide), all product designs were done in-house by ACP.

Jack Tramiel had built Commodore on the back of his large calculator range for many years, and it isn't surprising that he engaged in this market once again many years later through his Atari brand.

The Atari range of calculators were manufactured until 1990, and some units are still available today from specialised Atari dealers.
