FYI, in the 1980's, in Quebec/Canada, scientific & programmable calculators/computers availability was something like ...
  • TI was available everywhere
  • Sharp was available everywhere
  • HP was mostly available in College & University cooperative
  • Casio were very difficult to be found, if available at all. The only ones I saw was one or two models, Tandy rebranded in Radio Shack Stores.
I do not know about Casio availability for the rest of Canada or in USA at that time.
In 1989, I move out of the calculator world and came back only in 2011, so in my case, I am just unable to comment on anything related to Casio.

Thanks for the information, Sylvain.

Maybe Casios were most available in Europe and Asia. I can say that Casio was/is very popular in Brazil, since the FX-702p.

But actually my comment was not a critical one, it was only an observation, and now I know that maybe Casio was not available or scarcely available in North America at the prime of the Pocket Calculators.

Warm Regards from the hot as hell Rio de Janeiro!
