Texas Instruments of

The First Commercial totally electronic calculator was made by

Bell/ Punch Sumlock in the UNITED KINGDOM in 1961. It was called

the Anita ( Mk 7 and 8) and was the only electronic calculator on

the market untill 1964 when Friden in the USA and Sanyo in Japan

launches their own calculators. NO it wasnt Texas instruments or

some Japanese electronics giant it was a small English Firm

situated in Brighton that started the electronics revolution.

Sumlock continued to make calculators untill 1974 when Rockwell

bought them out and closed them down.

PLease get your history right the electronic calculator was

first made in ENGLAND.
